Great employment opportunities, especially for investment banking. Strong alumni network provides a structured, but rigorous recruiting process. Outstanding faculty, providing both theoretical and practical application of business fundamentals (i.e., core curriculum) and functional roles (i.e., immersion) to prepare students for internships and post-MBA success. Small community cultivates collaboration among peers.
Rural location makes travel difficult for recruiting. Very cold winters.
Intense core curriculum requires commitment to balance academics and recruiting.

Extremely strong alumni network; makes job recruiting tough only because of the overwhelming number of options available to students; particularly strong in NYC for aspiring investment bankers, consultants, and tech folksInvestment Banking Immersion rigorously prepares students for summer internships, leading to a higher conversation rate (% who convert summer internships into full time offers) than any other MBA programConsultants, SGE, Gen Mgmt, etc. also have first year immersions that serve the same functionTight-knit student body; high quality of life in Ithaca, NYVery strong diversity communities, e.g. military veterans, latino, lgbt, etc.
Cold Winters in Upstate NY. Competitive academically, but the collaborative culture generate overcomes this.
Study for GMAT, a necessary evil, far in advance of deadlines (for all schools)Relax & be yourself during interviewGet to know current students, especially those whose career goals align with your own so they can steer you in the right direction early on re: recruiting, etc.
