Some downsides to Cornell are that all students (with a few small exceptions) are required to live on campus. Ten percent of the senior class is allowed to live off campus in the apartments of Mount Vernon. Additonally, our calendar requires (and demands) the ability to juggle your time effectively. Many Freshman students simply can not handle the busy One-Course-At-A-Time schedule and end up transfering after one semester. Furthermore, because of our schedule, it is very difficult to transfer to a semester university after you have completed three semesters at Cornell - though it can be done. Currently, our food is not very good, but no college food is excellent. Cornell realizes this and starting in the 2003-2004 school year, Cornell has hired a health professional to review menus and various health aspects.
In short, many students agree that the actual education and learning experience is amazing, but Cornell's politics (i.e. off campus living, etc.) isn't always appreciated.
