Ok... I'm a rising senior and was considering Cornell. I visited it, and now they only Ivies I'm applying to are Dartmouth and Brown.
It seemed to me that Cornell has a really non-serious atmosphere. Like, one of the biggest school traditions is throwing squid at Harvard's hockey team. The impression I got was Cornell was all about drinking, partying, squid-throwing, and not caring about anything deeper than the keg at the next frat party. Is this true? (There's a rather nasty joke a Dartmouth kid told me that I won't repeat).
And Ithaka left much to be desired.
So what is life like at Cornell? Is it what it seemed to be to me?
