I'm contemplating sending my daughter from the west, yet the timing may not permit her to spend a night in the dorm (I know that part isn't guaranteed). Do you get just as much out of Cornell Days without the overnight stay and student host? She would spend the night with her cousin nearby. Can anyone describe the activities offered and if it's worth it to go for just the day (worth travelling across the country)? Someone suggested in a previous thread that I save my money and go to parent weekend instead (that would cost significantly more for 2 plane tickets, rental car, hotel if I could find one, etc, so is not in the cards).
FYI- she was an early admit, but would love to take a closer look and learn more about the campus.
