Theres certainly room for admit, its just not a safety. Its a good target.

I'm not trying to be negative at all, I just know how misleading the ranges can be. If OP wants T14 without a retake, Cornell is definitely his best shot.

The reason why you have decent shot at Cornell but not the other T14 is because Cornell has the lowest admission standards of the T14. See the admission selectivity rankings:

Edit, agreed it is a target and by no means a safety.

Just noticed those numbers. Absurd. Looks like I'm slated to go there. God wills it.

Yeah but those medians were 2 cycles ago (2009), so 2011's medians will definitely be higher. I'd say very slim chance at Cornell and no chance at any other T14.

I would seriously consider a retake. A single point could change everything.

The only T14 you have a shot at is Cornell.
However, you might be able to get into Penn with you apply ED.
In fact, I'd advise you to apply to any school you want except HYSCCN (the six schools you have absolutely no chance at).

I dunno about that. Without a retake, start at Cornell and apply right on down the line.

Can I get in at ___? You'll never know if you don't apply.

Post by Geat27 » Sat Jul 03, 2010 12:37 am

I would certainly apply to UPenn and Cornell and anywhere else you seriously want to go, application fees be damned.

And pay very close attention to your personal statement and the letters of recommendation sent on your behalf.

Good luck!
