Cornell, despite its flaws, is really an inspiring place to be. There is a crowd for everyone- yes, you have your upper-crust white jerks, but you also have a lot of very down-to-earth people from a wide range of backgrounds. I have met, worked with, and made friends with people from all over the country and the world, in a very wide array of fields (fields not found in any other Ivy). It is amazing the diversity of viewpoints and knowledge people bring to the table.

Expect to work hard. There are a couple of schools/majors (sorry Hotelies, AEM, PAM) that are pretty easy, but AAP, Arts, and Engineering promise an extremely rigorous courseload.

Students are comptetive, but usually helpful. Pre-meds are known to be cutthroat.

We are intense. We work really really hard, but most people know how to have fun too, whether partying (frats dominate the social scene for underclassmen, for juniors and seniors it's Collegetown) or one of the some 700 clubs or organizations.

Professors are, of course, all brilliant, but you'll find some variation as to how much contact you have with them. It's possible to be have a lot of guidance from profs, to do research with them etc., but you really need to put yourself out there.
