Cornell is what you make of it - students who work hard go on to do very well, students who don't , not so much.

The veterinary program at Cornell is very well organized and is continually being updated to better serve the students. It is a challenging rigorous program that challenges its students to do their best.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: Cornell has many great faculty members and resources for research in the field of Biomedical Engineering. The campus is very beautiful and there are things to do for the outdoorsy type. Cons: The administration is terrible and trying to get paperwork done is a laborious process. The campus is in the middle of no where and the town is full of hippies. The campus is also very big and parking is a nightmare. The nightlife is repetitive, and most of the people are either weird or spoiled brats. Overall Assessment: It is a very competitive school that teaches you a superior work ethic that follows you though life.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

Good class size, rigorous curriculum, and individual attention. However, program is relatively young and still favors undergraduates in some respects. For example, some required courses are taken with first-year undergraduates, which drastically lowers quality of classroom discussion.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program is demanding but the challenges show how much I am learning. I have learned so much just in the three weeks that I have started the program. One con is that the workload never stops; it's difficult to take extensive breaks. However, I can tell it is a program that will prepare me for the professional field.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Cornell has a very good MEng program in electrical engineering, in what it lets you design your very own agenda, which is convenient for your future career plans. I am learning a lot and enjoying all my classes. The existing facilities and multiple sports clubs make it easier to meet other people and make friends.

Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2013

The Cornell veterinary medical program is the top in the world for a reason. The education provided is excellent, and Ithaca is actually a pretty fun town to spend 4 years. Granted there isn't a lot to do in the surrounding area, but you will be spending all your time studying anyways. The veterinary community is very friendly and helpful at the school, not overtly competitive (unlike the undergrad climate).

Cornell is an exceptional university that lives up to its reputation. The programs are filled with people who will support you in every way to see you reach your goals. The campus is amazing and you get a rewarding education without the cut-throat competition.
