"Why Cornell" Question on Application

Postby bigwillie » Fri Nov 05, 2010 6:46 pm

So, Cornell asks why you would like to attend their law school on its application. The space provided is only a few lines. Is it appropriate to write an addendum for this question and attach it with the application or should one just give an explanation in the space provided (or could someone do both)?

Just put "Because of Andy Bernard."

Or "Because Cornell is one of the easiest T14 and easiest Ivy schools to get in to."

I went to Ithaca College, the weather isn't as bad as everyone's making it sound. I don't know if going to IC is a plus or a minus for applying to Cornell.

went to cornell for undergrad and i agree, it's not as bad as people make it sound. i'm from california, so i was pretty reluctant to put away the flip flops and ended up wearing them well into november. even with snow on the ground. -.- sometimes i actually think it might feel colder in norcal because we never turn on heaters, esp with ca's ridiculous energy costs.

Just use the lines provided. Cornell's dean mentioned in a TLS interview that they don't really care about "Why Cornell" and you liking their school much. They just want to know you as a person (and like you...)
