1350ish SAT isn't that competitive for a school like Cornell, try to aim for a 1400-1450+. And have you done much research on the school? I'm pretty sure all the Ivy League's require at least Writing, Math, and 1 other of your choice. French is fine though if you do engineering you should get a science in. If you're going into engineering, and even in general you should do Math 2C. Everything else looks good, work hard on those standardized tests. And ED is about 43% there.
