Hey! I'm looking for roommates.

Someone on the Facebook group made a housing spreadsheet in case anyone else is looking.

Any current students have experience/heard anything about Edgecliff Apartments? It seems to be a bit farther away than things in Collegetown, but still within walking distance, and much more affordable.

Though I neither know anyone who lives there or have experiencing living there, I run by that spot all the time. It's by a frat but otherwise it's rather secluded. From what I've seen with frats here, they can get rather rowdy, but I can't speak to the one near Edgecliff specifically. It's a solid mile and change from the law school so I'd expect 20-25 minute walk to and from each day. That's not too bad in the fall and spring but pretty awful during the winter.

I'm not sure about public transportation, that could make the big difference. But in general, I think you can do affordable and close to campus, just something to consider.

Hi all,

I will be attending Cornell this Fall with a $120,000 scholarship, and I've been looking into how to finance the rest of the school's cost. The student budget at Cornell is an estimated ~$80,000 per year ($60,000 tuition), and I will be receiving $40,000 per year in scholarship funds. That means that my tuition will cost me ~$20,000 per year and my room & board will cost me ~$10,000, making my most basic expenses total $30,000 per year.

This is where my questions start. From what I can gather, I can access $20,500 per year in Federal Direct loans. In addition to this (please correct me if I'm wrong), I can access $19,500 in Graduate PLUS loans. That is, 80,000 - 40,000 - 20,500 = 19,500. This would mean that after tuition and room & board, I would have $9,500 per year to live on. However, I would also need to factor in food, books & supplies, travel home in the winter and part of the summer, and (presumably) the cost of summer living expenses. I am a bit worried about this, so I have a few questions:

1. Is my math correct? (lol)
2. Is this a typical arrangement, or is there another source of money (besides parents, savings, etc) that students typically draw money from? i.e. private bank loans
3. The reason living on $10,000 for everything else in a year worries me is the cost of moving out of the dorm in the summer, after which I would hope to do a summer internship somewhere. How do students typically finance living expenses for internships? Are they paid well enough to survive? Is it possible for housing to be provided to interns? I know very little about this process

Thanks in advance for any responses to my wall of text!

if i remember correctly it was quite silent until mid to late June or so. Then you'll get an onslaught of things to do, make your Cornel ID, etc.

Enjoy having to do nothing for now :)

Check the status checker. They should have a message there telling you that they received your full deposit.

Same here. It's going to take a while to remember that random number.

On a happier note, CMail uses gmail and we get unlimited storage.

Free lifetime* unlimited storage, not bad!



*of Google

Edit: nope, never mind. Just the email address stays with you, gmail/unlimited storage seems to end upon graduation :(

Question for older students, how do JD/MBA students fare at AJF? I've heard mixed reviews on how firms view a JD/MBA so was wondering if its worth it.

Did any of you get accepted from the reserve list recently? If so, what are your stats?

They typically kill it. Then again, you need around medianish grades to get into the program once enrolled, and probably a decent level of WE to have gotten into the program as an 0L, so I can't attest to how much weight employers are giving the JD/MBA (it could just be that all the ones I know are generally pleasant to be around/good work experience and/or grades)
