Should I apply Cornell ED with legacy?

My mom attended Cornell as an undergraduate, and since I'm now applying to college, I just want to know my chances of getting in. I have about a 3.91 GPA(9th: 3.76, 10th: 3.95, 11th:4.0), 1460 SAT, (1500 superscore), involved in student government, and leader in clubs related to STEM. I have also a few AP's related to computer science and I want to major in Computer science or Mechanical Engineering. Could I possibly get in?

You already have a great application and being legacy will increase your chances even further. I think you should go for it!

If you can afford the application fee, I will say yes, you should try your chance, your GPA is good enough for Cornell, your SAT is good for Cornell, and your EC fits your major, the only thing is that you only said you only took a few APs, I have no idea how much you took, but if you took 5+ APs, that should be fine. Also, you are taking advantage of ED which is good since they have a higher chance to accept you, but lastly, you have legacy, that adds a nice touch to your application overall. Make sure to write a good essay too.

In short: Yes, try your chance

Good luck!
