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.

Social Life

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.
