Reasons to attend and to not attend Cornell University

To Attend

  • “Great college network. There is a lot of alumni who will help you out when you graduate.”
  • “There are a lot of very diverse classes. I’m taking a class in beermaking next year, and those cool classes are not at the expense of getting an education.”
  • “It’s a beautiful place. The Gorges are gorgeous.”
  • “The large, diverse student body. You miss out on the tight-knit environment where everybody knows everybody, but it gives you the chance to meet so many people.”
    • [About 21% of the undergraduate population are underrepresented minorities and about 10% are international students.]
  • “The professors are world renowned, they’ve done so many amazing things, and are still involved with a lot of research. There are a lot of research opportunities to get involved in.”

To Not Attend

  • “It is a very challenging academic environment and sometimes it becomes something that is overly stressful, overly exhausting, and mentally draining. All your tests end up being in the same week so you have to figure out how to study for each of them when you only have a day or two between each test. If you’re not up for that challenge, I would say that’s the biggest concern. People can get very frustrated with the academics.”
  • “Traveling there is expensive and a little bit difficult.”
  • “If you can’t stand the idea of feeling isolated on a college campus or in a certain place. I know a lot of people do feel that way sometimes.”
  • “It’s very far from a big city.”
