5.0 of 5 stars

August 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

The location is gorge-ous, the library is beautiful and quiet, the professors are accessible, and the class sizes are small.

Downers

Ithaca is in the middle of nowhere, the winters can be brutally cold and seem to last for an eternity, and everything is on an enormous hill.

Comments

If you want to work at a big law firm in NYC, then Cornell is the place for you. Few schools place better in NYC BigLaw than CLS.

The support from the faculty members and staffs is just amazing, and being a small school is definitely a plus in the job market

Downers

Not very strong network in non-NY markets such as DC

Comments

If you think you are a person who likes to prove yourself through rigorous studying and stellar grades, Cornell is a great place for that with great faculty support and beautiful environment.

More than good enough

August 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Small class sizes, personal attention was available from professors, great job prospects.

Downers

Limited access to networking with law firms given the location.

Comments

Cornell is a great place to study if you want to go into private practice in New York. However, getting to other markets and career paths can be more challenging there--- their bread and butter is getting people jobs at NYC law firms.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great School

Small Size
Particularly good if you want to work in NYC BigLaw

Downers

Isolated
Name doesn't carry some weight on the West Coast

Comments

Great place, but is somewhat out there in Ithaca. Does take advantage of the resources of the larger university, to make for a pleasant few years.
