    This school is not worth the 45,000 dollars per year I'm paying for, since my freshman year, services for students have been slowly diminishing, and the way that the business office does billing has changed dramatically every year that I've been here. I don't know what the future holds for Cornell, but hopefully it holds a well organized, well explained billing process.

    This institution does give a good overall value. The classes are set up for you to learn, and the unique calendar works well for a number of students. There are also a number of opportunities on and off campus. The one draw back for me is that I wish there were more dance opportunities.

    This is a very expensive college and not worth the full price. It does seem to be easier for the financial aid offfice to get help for students that can not afford the college. The price tag is at $48,000.

    Other than wanting a little more academic rigor, this college offers everything that I'd want out of a college experience.
