Was very general, but gave plenty of information. Did not go into any details though as some universities break things down quickly for parents. Very experienced person giving talk. [View Full Report]

The School of Engineering session was excellent and specific. The general college session speakers kept referring us to go to their website for more statistics, rather than answer the questions. [View Full Report]

We attended a combined info session for CALS, Engineering & College of Arts & Sciences. Informative - but long. The session ran close to two hours with a Q & A session at the end. [View Full Report]

We went to 3. Liberal Arts: excellent dynamic presentation; ILR: really informative; Agriculture - extremely poor. Speaker was boring and uninformed. Very little information about AEM. [View Full Report]

Very informative and engaging. Although I'd researched Cornell extensively before, the combination of a student and adminstrator perspective made it very interesting. [View Full Report]

The information session was very useful, I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in Cornell. I went to the Arts and Sciences College Info Session, and I learnt a lot. [View Full Report]

I attended both the CALS and CoE sessions. Both were very informative, and the admissions reps at each were friendly, ready to answer my questions, and honest. [View Full Report]

Slideshow presentation that gave a general idea of the school, but didn't impart a lot of solid information on living or academics. [View Full Report]

Very informative Powerpoint presentation. Lasted an hour and seemed a bit rushed, a tour was scheduled right after the session. [View Full Report]

Very business-like and the presenter knew his stuff but it was not dynamic and probably could have all been gleaned from the website. [View Full Report]

The information session was great. It came after the tour and I loved the tour so I think that I would have liked anything they would have said. [View Full Report]

pretty general, the stuff that they like to promote the most is the interaction between professors and the undergrads...the availability of them. $430 [View Full Report]
