Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Great professors, great classmates! In the (CQ) Executive MBA format, the workload is tough, and the pace hard, but doable, but the professors and the program really tailor to the education and experience overall to working managers.

Other than being in a rather remote town Johnson is perfect (though Ithaca is charming).

Exceptional faculty and staff provide a rigorous, highly useful curriculum. The alumni interaction and support are also terrific. Lastly, there is a strong sense of community and pride within Johnson that makes it an appealing place to live and work for two years.

Graduation Year: 2013

My experience so far in Cornell has been very interesting. First of all the Faculty members are so nice and accessible. The school environment is a beauty and Ithaca is an affordable place to live. The Law school curriculum is very efficient and skills oriented and students are kept busy with academic activities all year long. The disadvantage of attending Cornell is tied to its location, although being an Ivy League school and one of the best in the world, I feel we do not have access to information as to job opportunities like our counterparts in New York City Columbian NYU.

Isolated, middle of nowhere, but beautiful. Overly intense. Worthwhile.

Pro: The students and faculty are so smart and accomplished. We are like a big family. Cons: Computer lab is average. Some classes are mediocre (but most classes are exceptional).

Cornell Biomedical Engineering really cares how you are doing as a student and person. They will not let you fall by the way-side.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: - Applied device physics is very multidisciplinary and has taught me valuable tools such as clean room fabrication, characterization and design. All of which couldn't be possible without Cornell's state of the art nano-scale facility. -Cornell is one the few school's with a High Energy Synchrotron (CHESS). Haven't used it yet since I'm not in High energy physics, but it's nice to know it's there. Cons: -Getting initial access/training to the clean room is very expensive and not all advisor's (PI's) may be willing to pay for your training if you don't make the case that it's necessary for your education.

The research of Cornell is focusing on the theorem mostly. I do think some programs which are more closer to the reality and application may be helpful.
