Blue, I wondered the same thing after my visit. Cornell just seemed gloomier and the students seemed unhappy compared to Penn. I also met some 2Ls at Penn who weren't part of the ASW committee and they honestly told me they loved it.
I felt like the students at Cornell didn't like each other. I didn't see anyone studying together or even talking, just a bunch of people sitting alone.
I had a much higher offer from Cornell, but after my visit, I wasn't looking forward to attending. Fortunately, Penn raised my scholarship so the decision was easy.
I'm sure Cornell Law is a great place, and maybe I caught it at a bad time, but I was wasn't sure I'd be happy there after visiting too.
I didn't get this impression at all during the visit. I talked to a bunch of students not part of ASW, and they all seemed pretty happy.
Yeah, I have no idea what Blue and the snowflake dude are talking about. Maybe it's because you were at the mixer and they weren't, but we obviously like each other. I mean, there was a giant 2L wine tour yesterday, but you're obviously not going to see that on a tour of the law school on a Friday. And snowflake definitely wasn't in my tour group, because I specifically pointed out a typical 1L study group to them.
Anyway, more proof that admissions shouldn't have pushed ASW back into finals period.

Well, Chapter House burned down, so there's that.
