Cornell is awesome, but don't come here if you're looking for an easy degree. It's true, there is hardly any corrolation between amount of effort put into studying and the grades received. The professors and administration are overwhelmingly liberal and you are looked down upon for embracing anything but the most leftist views. The workload is hurrendous, but once you get used to it you realized you've developed quite the work ethic. Other than that, the social life is great- there are always lots of parties and events on the weekends, and even though most people study Sunday through Wednesday or Thursday (at least), there is always a place to hang out and get wasted with good, friendly folk whatever morning / night / day of the week. The "all freshman" setup on North Campus is great and really helps you meet people going through the same thing as you freshman year. The professors are top notch and are quite helpful during office hours. There is a niche for everyone, and I mean everyone. You just have to be pro-active and find it, and once you do, you will make the best friends and have the best years of your life. The winters aren't as bad as we get in other parts of NY state! One piece of advice for upcoming freshman—look at your curriculum for your major, meet with your advisor and CHOOSE YOUR CLASSES all before course add / drop starts in late August (it's impossible to choose classes once they're all full!) All in all, you can't wait to go home for breaks but you find yourself longing to come back after a few weeks!
