Cornell is a giant place but a place for everybody.

More often than not, the school seems like an academy preparing pre-professionals, not students, for their job placement.

Most professors are genuinely interested in seeing their students succeed.

A lot of pressure, grade deflation, winter wonderland, Greek life is dangerous.

Get ready to do your work. If you were the big fish in a little pond... This is a lake, and all of the fish are prize-sized.

“Hail All Hail Cornell”
October 2015CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

I love the diverse interests the students have. There are 7 undergraduate schools and you will meet people from every single one. As an engineer, I love the engineering program. It's rigorous and has a reputation as one of the best in the world.

Downers

The weather kind of sucks in the winter, but you'll become a tougher person for it!

Comments

Cornell is a great place to come if maybe you have some idea of what you want to study but aren't 100% sure. I know a lot of people that have changed majors and undergraduate schools within Cornell with ease. Cornell wants you to enjoy what you study and doesn't want you to feel pigeon-holed. It's a great place to explore a diverse range of interests.

Would You Recommend

Yes

“Good education”
August 2015FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

Variety of majors and classes means there is plenty of opportunity to explore and interact with students of diverse interests.

Downers

The class sizes are so big that it's difficult to feel like you know everyone which affects the culture.

Comments

Think about whether you're okay with social life revolving around the campus because the town is small, and whether you like a large school.

Would You Recommend

Yes
