What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Students are essentially housed in tiny dorm rooms, you don't get to see married student housing or second year housing (apartments) during the tour." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I wasn't very impressed by Cornell both because of my negative interview experience and because over half of the students to whom I spoke indicated that they chose Cornell because they wanted to live in New York. The day was relatively unstructured compared to other schools that I have visited and there was no offer of student hosting, which I guess is because the students live in dorms and haven't got room for anyone else. One girl who needed a place to stay the night before the interview was charged $60 to stay in a vacant dorm room. I thought that was sort of tacky. I just didn't get the impression that they were trying that hard to appeal to interviewees." Report Response
