I want to major in Mech E, and am applying to each of these schools for engineering. Anyway, who knows about social life at Cornell and at these schools. As in, time spent working, and such. I've read that at MIT kids crank out 14 hour weekdays and a decent amount of work on weekends too. I dont know if im willing to work that hard. Whoever knows alot about these schools, assess them on social/party life and free time pls.
P.S. What are my chances at these schools? reach, match, safety?

I'm president of our school's First robotics team, am really passionate about engineering. Good essay. Killer recs I believe. Numerous regional, some state and national awards in physics, math, and language, etc. I tickle the ivories (piano). Good AP's. Bunch of other EC's (the norms). Varsity Tennis.
My dad went to MIT so that helps there, good MIT interview, app is in. But thats a sh**load of work so i hear. And Cornell is frickin cold.
