Yeah, I dont understand that! (the cornell over fordham) Who wants to be in ithaca paying huge tuition AND housing! (ithaca is not cheap due to cornell's good reputation)
I know Fordham makes it somewhat harder to get a job, but in my opinion not that much harder in NYC. (I intend to go for nyc and nowhere else). Given that, and that I plan to work my pants off, and the 10K/yr scholarship, and only 10K/yr housing in one of the most awesome neighborhood around nyc (can we say we love upper east side?!? I can!), I just dont understand... is cornell really THAT good? I would have turned down fordham for: NYU, columbia, berkeley, stanford...
if you can, can you give me your opinion why you, or people you know, would have made the choice cornell over fordham?
Most people would pick Cornell over Fordham. I am sure you had your good reasons. Good luck to you.
I was also admitted off the waitlist today & offered 18K/year scholarship
(dependent on maintaing 3.0 gpa) I promptly declined, good luck to everyone!
Where are you going at this point--Cornell?
Did you do anything to pursue W & L?
I am going to Fordham, already declined Cornell.
I promptly threw their waitlist letter in the garbage can and forgot about them, (i.e. did not pursue, just ignored and didnt realize that was implicit agreement to stay on the waitlist)
