Cornell is one of the greatest research universities in the world, and providing undergraduates with research opportunities is a top priority.
We are happy to provide you with general information about admissions, our students, academics, and financial aid at the university. In particular, the admissions data listed here are meant to give you a broad understanding of the kind of highly qualified candidates we admit to Cornell. These numbers should not be interpreted, however, to mean that objective data are the most important criteria in our selection process. Other factors, such as secondary school curriculum and performance, special talents, extracurricular activities, essays, and interviews (where required) are critical to our decision making as well.
