As an Ivy League school, a research institution, and one of three private land-grant universities in the US, Cornell University admissions are highly competitive. Since its founding in 1865, Cornell has been a co-educational, nonsectarian university, but has expanded to include two satellite medical campuses, one in New York City and the other in Education City, Qatar.
Cornell University is an unparalleled college, filled with opportunities. Currently, I am in the Arts and Sciences College and though I wish to aspire to be a doctor, I am given the chance to study Latin and Ancient Civilization as a minor and to explore studies that interest me although it's not within my Pre-Med curriculum. Not only is the Arts and Sciences College full of a wide array of studies, the other colleges allow students to range in future careers from hotel administration to agricultural development.

Cornell is a wonderful institution with a beautiful campus complete with rivers and waterfalls. The five years I spent there were academically challenging, socially rewarding, and an unforgettable experience. I would not trade my undergraduate career at Cornell for any other institution.
