He responded by saying something along the lines of Cornell has trouble attracting higher quality applicants but the school does not want to adjust its teaching to its applicant/class pool.
Besides it completely makes sense that if school A and school B team the same things but school B's class is below the 25%tile of school A's, then school B students would have to study more to get the material. That might, in part, explain the difference bewtween the number of hours the students at each school spend studying.
So bottom line Cornell students do study more than everybody else?
yeah I think the report said something like 6 hours a day compared to 3 for Columbia and 4 for UT- that's all I remember. I will try to find the report though.
