Why Cornell

Ronitsingh1405Ronitsingh1405 6 replies26 threadsRegistered User Junior Member
In Why Cornell Essay, is it good to write about my interest in Computer Science with minor in Aerospace (which only Cornell offers) and also write about my interest in space science and University's Mars Rover Team as well as my preference to live in a small town as compared to a big city?

Can you give me some better ideas too!

    The best idea IMO is to think yourself of the real reasons you would want to attend, and use those.

    Make your essay as specific to Cornell and their programs as possible. Make them know that you get why it's the right fit, not just for you, but for them too. What will you bring to Cornell? What's special about Cornell's mars rover team (lots of schools have teams)? Why that combination of major/minor? Why not CSEE and astronomy minor (which is offered at other schools)?

    Again, be specific. Let them know you have done your homework. IMO, you are on the right track.
