I got the master's degree as part of the PhD program, which I would recommend to anyone pursuing psychology research

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

It was really nice and I felt like the professors were helpful and honestly cared about how the students learned. It was so tiring and it took a lot of effort, but I'm happy with what was my college experience.

Degree: Biology

Very very very hard and stressful, not a very sympathetic administration but you will learn and you will be smarter because of Cornell. You will have very good job prospects upon graduation. Requires a lot of hard work.

Degree: Materials Sciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2013

Cornell is a top tier school. Engineering is a hard program. I had a maybe-slightly-above average GPA with a handful of sleepless nights, but I would have done significantly better if I'd devoted more time to studying and less time to other activities. Cornell has a ton of student activities for you to be involved in, and it's pretty easy to make a new student group if there's something you're passionate which doesn't already have an official following at the school. The Diversity Programs in Engineering office is fantastic. I high recommend you look into their programs if you're even slightly considering engineering as a major. The Materials Science & Engineering department is relatively small, and the professors are great at helping you if you ask for help. Learn to ask for help.

Excellent experience. Big school but community feels small. Academically rigorous but lots of fun as well.

Degree: Technology Management
Graduation Year: 2017

Well, I'm still here, so it's great. It has its ups and downs like anywhere else (no guaranteed housing after sophomore year, *really*?) but it has so many wonderful people and dedicated professors that you can't help but overlook them. The old buildings really give off the feel of the authentic college experience. You quickly grow close to the people in your classes and in your major. The advisors truly want you to succeed, and since they come from all walks of life, their ideas about success are not constricted OR a one-size-fits-all. Also, please know that from about January to late March it is so cold in Ithaca that you will cry tears of bitter despair, but if you think you can handle it, come on up. The ride is worth it.

Degree: Natural Resources and Conservation, Other
Graduation Year: 2010

The quality of the instruction was very high. The school was large enough for me to find a social niche. The course offerings were diverse.
