Cornell University, the largest (and youngest) of the IVY League universities, is situated on a hill in the small city of Ithaca, New York, in the Finger Lakes area. There is a very positive, mutually supportive relationship between ‘town and gown’. Cornell’s 14,000 undergraduates come from all 50 states and 120 countries. Highly competitive admission standards admit only 14% of applicants. About half of those admitted enjoy some form of financial aid. Cornell’s marvelous facilities, including 20 libraries and 30 places to eat, cater to the needs of 21st Century students. With 100 academic departments offering 80 majors, Cornell has an undergraduate program for every academic interest. The graduate school offers 100 research and professional degrees. Candidates for admission who are particularly well qualified in their particular interest areas experience an advantage in the admissions process at Cornell: Applications are read by committees in the faculty the applicant is applying to rather than by a general admissions committee.
