Cornell is an excellent place to attend school. It is a quiet location in which you can really throw yourself into you studies and absorb all the information.

Great surrounding area. Ithaca is beautiful, has a small-town feel, and provides much to do. Great transportation system. -Great school. Promotes collaboration and teamwork over cutthroat competition. Phenomenal instruction and academics. -Good career support. The winter's areharsher than some other schools. -Not the largest network in the world, but network is supportive and active. -Workload is heavy at times, but I wanted a good education so that goes with the territory.

The program is extremely flexible and whatever you'd like to specialize in the school makes available to you. The downside is that it is in Ithaca which is pretty much a college town. Getting past that is easily the biggest down side of the program. You can make the program what you so therefore if you select this you have to be ready to apply yourself.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The courses at Cornell are really flexible, and there are so many choices and opportunities on campus. The professors are very supportive and patient to students. We have call to action and town hall meeting every year, which is the opportunity for students to talk to faculties how we think about the program, and what we want for the program. The faculties really listened to our opinion. They hire more land use and urban design professor this year, and set up urban design semester in NYC this year, all because we- the students want them. However, the location of the campus is so far away from large cities, which is one concern for me.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2014

They still do a c***** job of making sure that enough good classes are offered in the spring. Every single practicum is offered only in the fall. Annoying if you're only in a one year program.

Johnson is an incredible business program for nearly every career path. It recruits a very diverse student body, with an array of work experience, so create a challenging and collaborative work environment.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros, getting your foot in the door at CIPA before it becomes it's own school will allow you smaller competitiveness, all the academic resources of Cornell, and some seriously quick degree appreciation. We partner with the Maxwell School for a spring conference. There are tons of ways to get involved in leadership positions in the program. The diversity is incredible. Cons, Ithaca is nice, but it is the middle of nowhere. Getting to places where there are internships and not having that natural network is the biggest drawback when compared to programs like Columbia, American, and Georgetown. The decentralization of class selection is frustrating, even though it provides great variety.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: tight-knit community, excellent academics, great networking abilities with faculty and graduated Cornell vets. Cons: small community with everyone in each other's business, not much use of advanced technology
