I was wondering if I should put my anticipated major (Government) down on my Cornell Application or if I should apply undecided to the College of Arts and Sciences? I probably would major in government, but I do not know if it would hinder my chances of getting accepted if I listed it or if it will help? Any comments???

It makes such little difference that you may as well put it down. The admissions office will try to guess at the "undecided" people anyway to fill their classes... it's not like it's pre-med or something.

It might make a difference if your transcript shows a difference between your grades in the humanities/social sciences vs. math and science. If you achieved higher grades in the humanities, it might help a bit if you declared your anticipated major as "government."
