What's up with Cornell's financial aid? Do they give scholly offers? I've only gotten my admittance letter, and that's it.

I heard there was some kind of awesome viewbook or something that they sent admitted students. I just got the official letter in the mail from them and didn't see anything like that. Do they send more than one mailing?

I might... and I know that you are certainly welcome to brings guests.

Also...does anyone know when the new USNews rankings are going to come out?

They were officially released on March 14 last year, if I remember correctly?

Now that the initial excitement from my acceptance has wound down a bit, I do have a question about a job offer that I received a month ago. If anyone is interested in giving me advice, please PM me. I'm a bit nervous about being too open with that information. Thanks!

So I was reading through the 2014 thread and I noticed some people were offered hosts by the diversity org for ASW. Has anyone heard about this or know if this program is still in place? I'm a minority and I haven't received an invite

I think you could definitely make an argument for Cornell>Mich, but I honestly think Penn is in a different tier. Penn rivals Cornell in NYC placement, and really beats them in clerkship/PI placement.

Wtf, office is closed on V-Day? What kind of stupid shit is that?

<--- bitter and single

Just kidding, looks like they are doing training until tomorrow... maybe training their staff on giving out big schollies to all the admits 8)

Agreed, but both Penn and Cornell have an advantage over peers because of small class sizes too...

Do you need to complete the FAFSA before Cornell reviews you for merit scholarship?

How quickly does Hughes fill up? I am leaning towards Cornell but still waiting on a couple of schools, do I need to think about sending my deposit in soon? Any idea on how much time I have if I want to stay in Hughes?

Update on this: There will be diversity events during the April ASW and they will be sending out e-mail invites for student hosting some time next month if you are a minority. I think it's URM only but that also includes all Hispanics. I may be forced to go to the March one, but if you are a minority and have a choice you can save on hotel costs by doing the April one.

1L here. It's all over the place, but I would say the median is somewhere between 630-900. Anywhere in collegetown is going to be 700+. The prices are kinda outrageous here because it's a captive market. If you do some legwork though you can get something nice that's not completely ridiculous. I'm paying around 600 next year for a very nice house. One of my friends is paying around 400 for what he said was a shithole. And one of my friends is paying 1100 for a studio right now. It really depends on how flexible you are with roommates, quality and location. Cornell will give you a housing packet at ASW that gives you nearby housing info which includes pricing. You can always do a quick craigslist search to give you an idea
