can't they do something about that bridge? like cant they make the sides higher or something?
Don't just apply to a school for the "name" or because it would make your family happy, do your homework, research the academic environment and decide if it that is in fact for you. I have rarely seen on these threads students talk about the fact that they are applying to Cornell for the academic stimulation, I do however see many many posts about the "prestige" of being a Cornell student and how "cool" that would be..that is not the reason to attend a college and I think these are the kids who are overwhelmed when they get there.
