Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

The S.C. Johnson Graduate School of Management program is comprised of a close-knit, talented, and hard-working student body. The academic curriculum is both rigorous and relevant and specifically tailored to ensure that First Year students are adequately prepared for their summer internship and post-graduate professional endeavors. Overall, I have been exceptionally pleased and impressed with Cornell's business-school program.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

The BBS program's field of Immunology & Infectious disease has a good curriculum and a diversity of research interests within it's faculty to rotate through. I never feel lost in a crowd here, everyone in the Micro & Immunology department is friendly and faculty, post-docs, technicians and students generally know each other and get together at the end of the day on Fridays for a social hour with beer and snacks hosted by a different lab every week. In the first year of the program here, a required course that mainly focuses on grant writing provides essential practical skills for any researcher.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

The courses are useful and professors are great. But to be honest, the workload is little heavier.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The professors are great, and very nice to students. The courses are well designed and can help students find out their interests in preparation for future study. The only shortcoming is the location which is too far away from big cities which may be hard to access much job opportunities. But you have to admit that the view is amazing and a stress reliever.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is great for students who need a diploma as quick as possible. The courses are almost taking with undergraduates and not very challenge.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

The graduate program is excellent in rigor and research and accessibility. However, Ithaca is not easy to fly in and out of, which makes traveling more difficult.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2019

The Cornell philosophy department is a great one to be a part of. We have access to top notch, highly supportive professors. Our department is big enough to cover and have strengths in a wide variety of areas of philosophy and student interests, but small enough to have an overall very cohesive community. Everyone knows each other and people do a good job looking after each other. Our funding is quite good relative to other programs, and while rent is surprisingly high here, the money we get goes much further than it would in a larger city. Ithaca is a small town in a very natural area; outdoorsy people will relish the many hiking opportunities available. There are also a lot of restaurants and shops for a town this size. At the same time, it is rather difficult to travel out of here, and we have to contend with very harsh winters.
