It's hard to talk about everything about Cornell on a site like this; however, I think that it is a great school and one that is worth trying to get into. Admissions is tough, but the resources offered by the university are unparalleled. Amazing classes, great professors, a ton of extracurricular activities, and yes, a lot of snow. I would say that this is not a school for everyone. It is very large and some people won't like or handle that well. Going along with this, most classes are quite big so there isn't so much discussion and interaction as you might get at some smaller schools.
