    Beautiful campus with a ridiculous amount of natural areas/waterfalls within a close range to campus, and lots of events and things to do on campus. I'm studying exactly what I want to, and I'm able to take classes that truly interest me while still fulfilling requirements. Ithaca winters are cold but bearable. Once spring hits it is one of the most beautiful places ever. I'm not too fond of the abundance of greek life but no matter who you are you will find the people for you. ...Continue reading

    I'm majoring in CS and can say that the workload here is definitely tough, especially if you push yourself. Clubs are mostly professional clubs. Greek life dominates much of the social scene. The locals don't care much for the students, though with the resources they put in as far as tax dollars go with so little in return, I'd be frustrated when loud kids come screaming down my street, too. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 4/5
    Prestigious university with an amazing campus with abundant natural areas and waterfalls, and (mostly) amazing academics/professors. Exactly what I expected. Yes, it is challenging and I did not come from an elite private school, just a regular public school. The academics will challenge you, but if you attend office hours and work hard- you'll be okay! Your GPA won't suffer. Socially, just get involved as soon as you arrive in whatever you like and you'll make friends! ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 1/5
    I can't speak out against this school enough. Some fields are lacking in internships or networking opportunities while others are quite saturated. Some professors really care about students and really help them blossom. Others are part of a degree factory. Rapidly degrading to party school with party school problems. ...Continue reading

    I adore Cornell and all it has to offer. It's beautiful, full of countless opportunities to get involved in any number of social and academic groups, and attending has been hands down the best decision I have ever made. As is the case everywhere, Cornell does have its flaws, but it's the spirit of the place that really sets it far above: any person, any study. ...Continue reading

    If you like a really expensive school that does the bare minimum when it comes to science education then this is the place for you. I hate it's incredibly competitive and toxic culture. I hate the way it makes everyone so busy they can barely spend time together. I hate it for the two close friends of my who tried to take their lives that you will never hear about, and the unknowable number of others who also tried. DO NOT COME HERE ...Continue reading

    I transferred here, which is tough because they don't do a great job with transfers. I actually found it less challenging academically then my previous school. It's HUGE so make sure you really want a big school. You have to be in greek life to be in the main social scene otherwise it's pretty exclusive. The students don't really have fun. This is most certainly a top 10 CS school. I've met some great people here, and made some great friends. However, keep in mind that the most talented CS people here are primarily MIT and Stanford rejects - they would prefer to be there. ...Continue reading

    I absolutely love this place. Love the social scene here, though you have to like frat parties. It's full of hills, so be prepared for walking a lot. It isn't as cold as everyone says, but it is in the middle of nowhere and it kind of feel like there's no contact with the outside world. Also, it's kind of a pain to fly into Ithaca and to go off campus. However, it feels like a community even though its huge. ...Continue reading

    Best combination of traits one looks for in a college- beautiful campus, dope food, awesome profs, and fun social scene From the academic advisors to the professors, or social activities to the academic life, this school makes anything possible.

    Cornell is a beautiful, cold place that is a strange mixture of genuine, empathetic people who want to learn and a culture of cut-throat money-incentivized robots.
