I want to do communications and Cornell's CALS has the exact program I'm looking for! I know you can't fully predict if I'd get in, but an idea as to whether my stats can even get me through the door would be great!

-Full IB Diploma candidate (4 HLs + 2 SLs) plus AP gov
-White female
-by end of the year: 3.93 UW and 4.61 W gpa (4 b's junior year - 2 in IB HL Physics (teacher for it is writing me a great rec about my work effort and perseverance), 1 in honors precalc, 1 in IB HL history)
-1500 sat

extracurriculars
-heading comms/marketing for regional social action summit
-2 terms of board (head of programming and head of communications), writer/editor for our online newspaper multiple years, programming and support chair - for youth group chapter of 100 girls
-Year in social entrepreneurship fellowship where me and a partner are developing an elementary after school club curriculum to teach girls speaking skills and increase their class participation (hope to have in schools next year)
-Have ran successful online clothing-resale business since 9th grade
- In dance company since 7th grade
-attending UPenn's Leadership in the Business World program this summer (15% acceptance, so I know my teacher rec and essays must have been good)
-will also have a marketing/comms internship next year

If I apply ED I would have legacy, but not sure how much that actually helps. Also, I've talked to CALS admissions people who say they look for major-fit and I can definitely show I'd fit well with the comms program in an essay)
