Students applying to a particular Cornell college or school solely on the basis of its acceptance rate may find that the selection process works against them. During selection, all of the undergraduate colleges and schools carefully evaluate the "match" between an applicant's academic and personal interests and the program to which they are applying. Applicants who do not seem to be a good match for their academic home risk being refused. Authenticity is an important part of every application. With this in mind, the Cornell Admissions team encourages students to explore all of Cornell’s colleges and schools to see where they fit best.
