<p>would i be good enough to apply for cornell?</p>

<p>yeah you should be fine</p>

<p>what's a block schedule system?</p>

<p>what's cornell's schedule system? besides the semester/trimester stuff</p>

<p>I want to learn how to fence......</p>

<p>block is where you take a few classes in long blocks of time, and switch them up on days of the week. or you take 4 classes by 2 semesters versus 8 classes by 1 year. those are 2 forms of it.</p>

<p>cornell operates on a semester system. if you're behind from illness or adjusting your major later in your college career you can take a short winter or summer session ($ i think) thats only like 6 weeks to help get extra courses without overloading yourself.</p>
