I-Banking at Cornell and a couple other questions


<p>I was wondering if Cornell is a good choice for someone looking at either I-Banking or Pre-med (its not JUST about the money…well maybe it is for I-Banking, but Medicine I’m truely passionate about). </p>

<li><p>Do a lot of the good I-Banks recruit at Cornell? Also, to be recruited do you have to be at the very top of cornell, or just above average?</p></li>
<li><p>How tough is Cornell, I’ve heard everything from managable to suicidal?</p></li>

<p>In fact, are there any Economics or Neuroscience majors here that can comment on the courseload because those are my final 2 choices for majors (and maybe Mech Engineering)</p>

<p>thanks in advance</p>

<p>Cornell is excellent in both of these areas. Just about every major investment bank recruits at Cornell, and the biology major is one of the best in the Ivy League.</p>

<p>How tough the work is really depends upon the major, and the individual. Your "manageable to suicidal" scale is perhaps non-exhaustive. There are some students out there who actually feel that if you put in some effort, and do all of you work in a timely and organized manner (in certain majors), Cornell can be pretty easy. Of course, I'd say the majority of people would agree that its somewhere in the range you specified. I have never heard an engineer ever call Cornell "easy" though.</p>

<p>The economics major isn't too bad, but requires far more math than does the AEM major. In addition to the basic econ courses, you're required to take a second level of macroeconomics, econ dept. stats, econometrics, and a number of upper-level econ courses of your choice. You must also fulfill the CAS distribution requirements. In AEM, many of these upper-level economics courses are replaced with some courses in accounting, management, marketing, etc.</p>

<p>I don't know much about students whose interest lie in neurobiology, other than that the neurobiology department (NB) has some pretty cool and interesting courses.</p>

<p>how does Human Ecology's PAM program compare to the traditional economics degree?</p>
