Ithaca is a depressing city to live in. School is unnecessarily difficult for certain majors, even for those looking for a challenge

The only major complaint about this top-tier Ivy League university is the location. Ithaca is pretty small but the good thing is that the campus is so big that you rarely leave the campus (because there is so much going on all the time). The winter can get a little depressing and cold, but overall really great.

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've had many opportunities from going to Cornell, even ones you wouldn't expect, just from the name and size of the university. The only downside is that SOME students are competitive and arrogant.

I'm majoring in CS and can say that the workload here is definitely tough, especially if you push yourself. 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.

Prestigious university with an amazing campus with abundant natural areas and waterfalls, and (mostly) amazing academics/professors. Coming to Cornell has been the best decision I've ever made. The only downside is that everyone is fiercely competitive and there are cliquey groups (as in many schools though). Financial aid is also amazing here.

I can't speak out against this school enough. 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

I adore Cornell and all it has to offer. Could not imagine going anywhere else. Every aspect of a college experience that you could want is offered here, whether intellectual, social, or just aesthetic. Beautiful campus, friendly and welcoming people, cute downtown with plenty of restaurants, and excellent professors.

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 have had several professors where it was clear they only cared about their research so they showed up late to EVERY single class and gave a very disinterested lecture with almost no information on their powerpoint.

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.

I absolutely love this place. To me it is the perfect balance between work and play. Everyone is extremely welcoming and inclusive, I honestly could not wish for a better environment to live in.
