    -What did you think of the program?
    -Do you feel you were well prepared for your graduate studies?

    -My own feeling, graduating from Cornell in antiquity, was that people pretty much "got what they deserved"; people who were "good" did really well for themselves, others not so much, and everything in between, and it corresponded roughly to their actual individual merits. Did you observe the same? Did the CS grads you knew do relatively well for themselves? I guess what I'm askng is do you think Cornell did well by them, all in all? should the aspiring CS'ers viewing this thread want to go there?

    I don't know if you can answer this, but how much do you think the CS at Cornell has changed since you left in 2012? It seems to be the one major that has exploded in terms of interest and numbers at just about every school.
