My friend applied ED and got in with about a 3.8 UW GPA, 1350, one club, horrible essays (I read them), and virtually no EC's....you're in!

One of my friends got rejected with a 1560 last year, and the other one got in with 1300s. I have no idea how they make the selections...

I think Cornell is really worried about yield, being the 'lower' Ivy (even tho that really doesn't mean anything), and not quite at the prestige level of HYPS etc, I think it's possible they may reject people with very high scores etc just because they think they will instead decide to matric to HYPS or someplace else.

this may seem like a dumb question, but whats HYPS?

Harvard/Yale/Princeton/Stanford... i.e. the top 4

Actually my friend with 1560 got rejected by Cornell, Upenn, and Dartmouth. So, go figure... There might be something not right with his applications that I didn't know.
And I don't believe that Cornell will do something as stupid as rejecting people with overly high stats...

ehhhh i know someone who got into Princeton (where he goes now), Harvard, Yale, MIT, and UChicago, but got waitlisted at Cornell. Cornell is known for rejecting/waitlisting people with great stats, because they are likely using Cornell as a "safety."

Your friend with 1560 must have had flaws in other parts of his/her application.

stats does not guarantee success in the real world... if the college is really smart...theyd look at personality and your committment to what you do. because....especially in america...a school consisted of only high scores will surely get criticism...

i think we may be looking at the difference in difficulty of applying ED vs applying RD.
