"Cornell Law is a great investment in yourself. It's hard work and you can't expect any less. You feel very much like you're not here to make friends but to succeed career wise only"

"The best part about attending Cornell Law is the small class size and the type of community it creates. Not only is it easier to get to know my fellow classmates, but it is so easy to access professors and administration. The close knit atmosphere really does help—especially when stressed out with classes."

"Cornell Law is exactly what you want from a T-14 law school, excellent teachers, intelligent peers, and legitimate help with finding a job. I haven't been disappointed, and I know that I went to the best place to start my career."

"The faculty and the small setting of the law program provides a familial feel and collegial environment. The faculty members are brilliant and because the school is so small, you can make connections with professors and it is easy to build relationships with a number of them. The biggest downside is the location and the terrible weather. But if you like the small town feel, this could be the right place for you."

"Ithaca is a small town with not much to do in the winter. However, this doesn't matter because you will not have a whole lot of time to go out anyway. The professors really care about their subjects and about teaching them, not just about publishing. While the environment is competitive, people are not malicious. It's a small enough school that what goes around comes around, and most people seem to understand this."

"My experience so far in Cornell has been very interesting. First of all the Faculty members are so nice and accessible. The school environment is a beauty and Ithaca is an affordable place to live. The Law school curriculum is very efficient and skills oriented and students are kept busy with academic activities all year long. The disadvantage of attending Cornell is tied to its location, although being an Ivy League school and one of the best in the world, I feel we do not have access to information as to job opportunities like our counterparts in New York City Columbian NYU."

"Pro: The students and faculty are so smart and accomplished. We are like a big family. Cons: Computer lab is average. Some classes are mediocre (but most classes are exceptional)."
