Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Great school for an MBA. It is a top 10 MBA with all the resources you might need. Consider the fact that is somewhat located out of a major city thus recruitment adds up to the costs.

Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2017

Cornell is the top veterinary school in the country for a reason. I am specifically specializing in shelter medicine and Ithaca is where the no-kill revolution began, and the local SPCA is one of the best in the country. The vet school is wonderful and everyone is supportive of each other. Classes are extremely difficult but that is to be expected, and opportunities abound for networking and hands-on experience.

Degree: Systems Engineering

I will be there in Fall 2014 to start my year-long academic program. So far based on all the checklist and preparation I have made so far the school is great!

Degree: Aerospace Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The thing that really stands out about the Cornell M.Eng program is the interaction with the professors. I feel that I have gained more real-world knowledge and connections in one semester of my graduate program than in four years of undergrad at Cornell. The downside is that graduate students do not receive any financial aid. It makes it really tough to initially justify the decision to attend.

Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The Cornell University Veterinary Medicine program is known to be the oldest and best rated out of all veterinary programs in the United States. From the moment I was invited to the information session after my acceptance into the program, I felt the warm of the faculty towards the students. I no longer felt the divide between teacher and student. But as mentors, colleagues, and friends. All of my professors have been dedicated, intelligent, and passionate individuals who continually support the class is so many ways. From coming in to the gross lab on the weekends for study sessions, to going jogging on lunch breaks, and even directing choirs and plays. The workload is intense, but manageable. My only wish is that there were more ethnic and cultural diversity within the classes. The cost of tuition is also a common issue many students face in graduate programs this day and age.

Degree: Systems Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is great in terms of course flexibility and allowing students to explore their interests through an intense senior design project. The masters in engineering program at Cornell is meant to be a continuation of the four year undergraduate degree and is only one year, which can be considered a pro or a con depending on what type of program your looking for. One con of the program is that it's very helpful to develop good relationships with faculty, and if you don't you can miss out on opportunities to do great research.

Cornell's veterinary program is truly amazing. The passion and love for educating the students are clearly evident in all the professors. The curriculum itself is very unique and conducive to learning.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe it is a great university with great infrastructure when compared to Columbia, Duke and others. Also Ithaca, NY is affordable when compared to other schools. The only con I find is probably its location but their reputation and the fact that it is a top business school makes its bearable since you are with great people around.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

A few weeks after beginning my graduate program at Cornell University, I was headhunted to carry-out an agricultural research in Burundi, Africa. The vast collaborations that Cornell has with other institutions is the main reason why this opportunity was made possible. Without a doubt, the program has opened me up to new ways of learning. I'm already interacting with communities, giving of myself daily, while still having an enriching experience of personal development and professional network building.
