Discussion of Cornell's Admissions Standards:

While Cornell University is not quite as selective as Harvard, Yale or Princeton, it is still one of the most selective colleges in the country. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. As you can see, the majority of students who got into Cornell had a GPA in the "A" range, SAT scores (RW+M) above 1200 and ACT composite scores above 25 (scores higher than this lower range are obviously going to improve your chances measurably). Hidden behind the blue and green are a lot of red dots, so keep in mind that high grades and test scores are no guarantee of admission to Cornell. For this reason, even strong students should consider Cornell a reach school.

At the same time, keep in mind that Cornell has holistic admissions -- the admissions officers are looking for students who will bring more than good grades and standardized test scores to their campus. Students who show some kind of remarkable talent or have a compelling story to tell will get serious consideration even if grades and test scores aren't quite up to the ideal.
