Campus Visit Notes for Cornell University


Visit Description:

visting the school really makes up your mind about applying/accepting their offer. before i visited, i was torn between cornell and a couple other ivies. visiting made up my mind, i can't imagine going to school anywhere else.

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

courtyard marriot was great, they have a free shuttle to the campus.

Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:

saki bombing at plumtree.
collegetown bagels.
if you can eat at a dining hall MAKE SURE YOU EAT AT RPCC. that ALONE will make you apply.
