The few breweries they have
Castaways
Moonshadow Tavern(board and video games? Just sounds odd to me)
The Haunt

Anyone actually know anything about the bars there?


Bar crawl on Friday??

Are people actually planning to stay through Saturday for the campus tour? I think I'm just going to bounce Friday evening.

I'm not sure yet, but I feel like it may be way more expensive to fly out on Friday night

Ermm.. I was thinking about driving. CT isn't too far away. I'll check for cheap flights though.

I love both beer and Ivy League prestige so about time I checked in to this thread.

I really want to attend an ASW but I would have to fly and getting to Ithaca is giving me a headache already. How is everyone getting there? Fly into Syracuse and rent a car? Bite the bullet and fly into Ithaca airport?

I'm fairly certain I'll be driving up (only a 4.5hr drive).

Umm.. and I seriously hope somebody else makes a decision to attend Cornell; I don't like this limbo stuff.

The bars that are easiest to get to from Cornell are in Collegetown. The ones you listed are downtown/elsewhere, which is going to mean a 20ish minute walk. That being said, there are like 3 decent bars in collegetown. I recommend Chapter House, which is like a five or six minute walk. If you go to Cornell next year, you'll find yourself there often.

Last year I had to ask for them to extend the deadline for parents tax returns. They just had me send the previous year's.
It doesn't matter anyway since no one gets need aid and they don't use it to determine merit aid.

I think you have to fill it out to be eligible? But no, parental income isn't used for merit aid.
