Major: Computer Science (This Major's Salary over time)
I love this school. The CS department is very theoretical, but thats ok because the theoretical stuff is more interesting to me than the endless coding that you will do your freshman and beginnign of sophomore year. But in reality you do some pretty interesting things early on. I got to make a game, program AI for some applications and pit other humans against it, and develop a functioning pipelined processor all in my first few semesters. The classes are hard, especially your core engineering classes. But once you get into the core CS classes you get much close with the professors and learn a great deal. Also the CS Major allows you a lot of room with electives, and the courses here at Cornell are so diverse that you can apply yourself to several areas and specialize in several things that will help you out in future life.

Watch out for Chem 211 and Physics 213 !!
