The facilities were great.  Everything seemed in great shape, and it was a beautiful law school.  There were plenty of places to study, and there was even a squash court in the law school (weird, I know..). 

I attended a civ pro class taught by Prof. Clermont.  He's apparently a star prof (he coauthored the casebook they use), and he definitely lived up to his reputation.  He made it interesting, covered points well, and even cracked a few jokes.  The class seemed to follow along well, and everyone seemed like they were happy to be at Cornell.

You should definitely go to an ASD.  There were quite a few people there who were fairly undecided until they went to the ASD.  The school will really leave a good impression.  Everyone from the faculty, to the administration, to the students seemed very happy to be a part of Cornell law, and there was a very strong feeling of community at the school. 

Check it out.

You were at the ASD?  Which class did you go to?

Nope, I couldn't make it to this ASD so I made this post for those who went to share their thoughts.  I was going to try the later March ASD, but now I may push it back to April 3rd...dunno  :-\

YESSS!!! Come to the April 3rd ASW, so I won't be the only LSDer there!

Some people have already heard.  You will not hear anything unless you have all your financial aid stuff submitted.

The deadline is Friday, so get cracking if you haven't!

Clermont is almost as smart as he thinks he is.

But he is an excellent lecturer.

Cornell is a great place to be.
