  • Feb-20-2017 I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Definitely visit. For me it was a long way coming from NC, but you can only get so much from online and reading sites like these. I was pretty sure I wanted to go to Cornell before visiting, but it wasn't my first choice. After visiting it moved right to the top - and it wasn't even close. Also, while visiting, don't just do the info session and tour. Line up an appointment with a professor or dean in your major. Come prepared with questions so you're not wasting their time. I did this and it really helped me when I was crafting my supplemental essay on my application. I was able to name names and locations. The admissions committee can tell when you've been on campus and really investigated versus just skimming a few websites and writing a generic response. It's worth the time and effort - so go to Ithaca as soon as possible.
