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
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.
Decent amount of normal chill people. Way
more crazy stressed out try hard people who love the
library a bit too much.
