Cornell or Georgetown??? (Transfer Student)
Hello, I am a current undergraduate student at Georgetown University (McDonough School of Business) majoring in Finance and minoring in Arabic and Computer Science with a 3.82 GPA. I took 16 credits my first semester between Arabic (6), Computer Science (3), Microeconomics (3), Introduction to Biblical Literature (3), and Microsoft Excel (1). My second semester I took 18 credits between Arabic (6), Computer Science (3), Macroeconomics (3), Accounting (3), and Statistics (3). I was just recently accepted as a sophomore transfer student (Fall 2017) to Cornell's College of Arts and Sciences for Computer Science. I would be planning on double majoring in CS, Econ, and minoring in Arabic. However, I am facing a tough decision on whether or not to attend Cornell for the Fall.
A few things about what I care about: the cold does not bother me at all and, in fact, I find DC to be a bit too hot for my taste (4 years in a New England Boarding School), I do not mind being in a city or not a city (again the boarding school thing), and I do care about the academic programs (specifically for what I am studying). I am here asking for what you believe the pros and cons of Cornell are for what I want to study and the school in general and what you believe I would be gaining/giving up by transferring from Georgetown to Cornell. I am here really hoping for some first-hand answers from current or past Cornell students or relatives of Cornell students. Thank you all so much for your help.
