The only reason you should go here is for the name after graduation. If Cornell is the "best" college you got into and your really determined to get the most profitable degree possible then you might consider this school. Be warned its at the expense of a normal college experience.|
In the science and programming departments you can learn alot and get hands on experience. However, there is a large amount of unnecessary hardship they will make you go through and even more busywork. The other departments mostly thrive on busy work with an occasional course of value thrown in.
The format of most courses at this school is the "prelim" format. The most common form of this is to have 3 prelims and a final. Each prelim is usually worth as much as the final. This means you have a high pressure tests every 3 weeks or so per class.
The schools once thriving Frat system is dying because of constant assault by the administration. The once numerous open parties are now replaced by fewer lower quality parties. You can go to some crowed sweaty bars in college town though.
PeopleDecent amount of normal chill people. Way more crazy stressed out try hard people who love the library a bit too much.

| Seriously think twice before coming to this school. Though it is exciting to get accepted to an ivy league university and very easy to get absorbed in the romanticized idea of being an ivy league student, consider all your options. If medical school is your goal, DO NOT GO HERE. Your gpa will be horrible and you will most likely not have enough time to get involved enough to have a competitive application for med school. You study 24/7, more than you would ever expect. And it does not pay off at all. You are basically completely helpless when it comes your grades, which are based off what you already knew and therefore how good of a high school you went to. The professors think they are the best thing ever and can't teach. At all. AT ALL. They try to purposefully fail you and get mad if you actually do decent (above a C-). If you want a degree from a prestigious university and don't mind 4 years of complete depression and self-doubt, this is the place for you. If you plan to go on to medical school or something similar, or have some hope of fun or slight success during your college years, go elsewhere. |
