Love the professors and the ability to learn about anything I want to in my MBA program. I was especially interested in marketing, but it also has fantastic opportunities in consulting and investment banking. Make sure you have some warm clothes for the winter!

Great group of fellow students. It's one of the smaller Master of Architecture programs so everyone is well acquainted and supportive. The class is divided nicely between architecture undergrads and non-architecture background students. This creates a nice collaborative environment where everyone shares ideas without approaching problems from the same direction. The recruiting committee really tried in terms of background diversity, with fellow students coming from music, finance, art, math, and other liberal art majors.
Cornell is a great school academically and the professors are the best in their field. They are also incredibly nice and helpful. However, it is a very challenging school. Be prepared to push yourself. If you find yourself needing help, do not be afraid to reach out. There are several campus resources available. The school is also very beautiful but it's located in a small town and isolated from large cities. Despite this, there is always something to do in Ithaca. The town hosts several festivals year round and there are lots of activities to do. It's especially great for people that love the outdoors. There are tons of amazing hiking spots and swimming holes.
