Hello! While the exact numbers may vary from year to year, based on recent admissions cycles, Cornell's Early Decision acceptance rate tends to be around 22-24%. Meanwhile, the Regular Decision acceptance rate is generally lower, ranging from 8-11%.

It's important to note that applying Early Decision can provide a slight boost to your chances, as colleges like to admit students who are committed to attending their school. That being said, the applicant pool for Early Decision might be more competitive compared to Regular Decision. Keep in mind that you should only apply Early Decision if you are sure Cornell is your top choice and you're committed to attending if admitted.
