    I think your stats and activities put you in a good position for Umich! (I can't talk about Cornell because I don't know enough.) The only problems you may have - if you are local, do many kids from your high school apply to Umich and are their stats similar? I don't know how Umich chooses between these students, but your international internship does add diversity points. Also, these stats may be good enough that Umich will defer you because they may think you want to go to somewhere like Cornell.

    Thank you.
    Here's hoping!
    We can't wait!
    Since we are local, I just don't know what it means. They do take a high number of kids from each local high school. But it's Uber competitive in our area, and Uber competitive for engineering. So... We shall see. We will apply to Cornell regular decision so we won't know about that for a while and too choice is U of M, Ann Arbor. . :)
    Thanks again.
