What are your general comments?

"PBL might suit some people, but the amount of emphasis that cornell placed on the program and the grading policy (very subjective, 30% of final) were very unappealing to me. there are "quizzes" every 2 weeks, which are essentially 45min tests. housing is subsidized and cheap, but not very nice. the students in general were not overly positive about the school - several complained about courses, and it seemed like few people did much outside of studying. the interviews themselves were very odd. the first one went very slowly (i got the impression that the person was very bitter for some reason). the second one was more confrontational and not very friendly. the whole atmosphere seemed very cold and competitive."
