Before applying I ran the math and figured that I had maybe a 75% chance of getting into Cornell so I wasn't too shocked when I got in."

Useful Advice

"I'd say that what you need to do to get into any college is to find out what you need to do to get into the college then working pretty much along that rulebook to give you the best shot of getting in."
