I know I'll be pushing my kids to goto Cornell. Enough said. But for more details: One of the best engineering programs in the country (or world). Fantastic alumni connections. People know you are a serious candidate for employment. A huge variety of opportunities are presented to you at Cornell. Make the most of it!

It is a big place. It can be overwhelming, and is sometimes. There are many resources here.

Cornell has a beautiful campus with very nice facilities. The teachers and students are intelligent and motivated. It is very expensive.

Fantastic professors who are almost all very available to students. Course material is challenging and workloads are heavy, which means students need to work very hard to get through the program, but by the end they will have truly mastered their chosen fields. Broad selection of courses allows students to sub-specialize in almost anythings they want. Ithaca itself is a fantastic place to be a graduate student. The Cornell community is very welcoming and supportive, and campus always feels safe. Rent is higher than some college towns, but not absurdly so. Quality of restaurants and shops in the area is also high. Biggest complaints are probably lack of financial support for graduate engineering degrees. However, most students would probably agree that the investment is worth it.

The professors and researchers are very enthusiastic about their work and teaching others. However, the department is relatively small and disconnected from other engineering disciplines on campus.

Cornell Statistical Sciences is a good program at cornell. It opened up a lot of doors for me on the outside to get quality jobs. I recommend the program to any aspiring statistician.

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

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.
