ACADEMIC REVIEW

Harvard College students describe the school as a “dynamic universe” and an “amazing irresistible hell” that pushes them to the extremes of their intellect and ability. Unsurprisingly, the legendarily “very difficult” school attracts some of the country’s most promising youth, who rise to the occasion in almost every aspect of their life on campus, not just the classroom. Harvard’s recent financial aid enhancements have increased the number of applications by a landslide, but even after getting past the admissions hurdle, “people find ways to make everything (especially clubs and even partying) competitive.” Happily, this streak is more of a “latent competition,” as there are more than enough opportunity and resources to go around. “It is impossible to ‘get the most out of Harvard’ because Harvard offers so much,” says one student. Much like the students, the professors at this “beautiful, fun, historic, and academically alive place” in Cambridge, Massachusetts, are among “the brightest minds in the world,” and “the level of achievement is unbelievable.” Some of the larger introductory classes are taught by teaching fellows (TFs), meaning “you do have to go to office hours to get to know your big lecture class professors on a personal level,” but once your figurative underclass dues are paid, the access to “incredible” and “every so often, fantastic” professors is perfectly within reach. Top it off with Grade-A internship and employment opportunities, a good old alumni network, and a crimson pedigree for your résumé, and you may just end up agreeing with the Harvard student who refers to his experience as “rewarding beyond anything else I’ve ever done.” Though the administration can be “waaaaay out of touch with students” and “reticent to change,” it at least “does a good job of watching over its freshmen through extensive advising programs,” and students all have faith that their best interests are being kept in mind.

WHAT THEIR STUDENT’S ARE SAYING

“Beautiful campus, close-knit community, lots of opportunity for research in sciences, alumni network”

“Cornell is a giant place but a place for everybody.”

“Beautiful campus, superior education, very smart colleagues and professors, a lot of great research on campus.”

Cornell is "more than a bunch of books and exams—it's an experience that challenges students to break free from their comfort zones." Seven different undergraduate colleges "really make it feel small and specialized," with "top-notch faculty." The university is "a place where any person can find instruction in any study (and it won't feel like work)," as it allows its students to explore any kind of interest they may have (ranging from Punk Rock as a literary genre to particle physics) while "also offering an incredible amount of depth within each department." There are endless opportunities to "pursue other topics, enhance your knowledge of things that you're already interested in, and try completely random things that you'd never even heard of before." Professors are "experts in their field, almost always conducting their own research, and are enthusiastic about passing their knowledge on to their students."  "Cornell keeps the faculty, research, and access to the most recent information so up-to-date that this campus is as connected as any place in the world." Between balancing those amazing resources and the community feel, the Cornell bigwigs get a lot of applause, as they have "proven time and time again that they care, both on an individual and system-wide level." Great internships, a strong alumni network, and "boundless opportunities after graduation" round out the "definition of amazing" that is Cornell University.

ONLINE RECRUITING STANDARDS – NONE LISTED

Cornell Track and Field purposefully does not set recruiting standards. Why? They would rather sift through a large volume of prospective student-athletes expressing interest in their program and school and work through them prospect by prospect just in case there are “diamonds in the rough” out there. Very cool.

WHAT THEIR STUDENT’S ARE SAYING -  VIA THE PRINCETON REVIEW

Tucked away in bucolic New Hampshire, Dartmouth College manages to strike a nice "balance between the intimacy of a college [and] the opportunity of a university." Students feel fortunate that the administration places an "emphasis on pursuing passions, and making the college experience your own." And while Dartmouth certainly maintains a "competitive" atmosphere, students here truly appreciate that "no one really talks about their grades openly." Indeed, it's "generally understood that everyone is smart." A neuroscience major tells us that academically, "Dartmouth puts a huge focus on the undergraduate students, and I have found my professors to be available and engaging in nearly every instance. My classes are all challenging, but they are very discussion based and tend to be small, which keeps me working hard and interested in the material." And an impressed Middle Eastern studies major interjects, "I came to Dartmouth for the professors, but they were far beyond anything I could have hoped for. Not only are they great lecturers and accomplished scholars, they go out of their way to be available outside of the classroom, and to forge relationships beyond what is expected or necessary." When it comes down to it, "Dartmouth is considered to be a combination of Hogwarts and Disney World because it is known for its community and intelligent students and faculty, who also are personable and know how to have fun."

COOL ALUMS

Abbey D'Agostino is the most decorated Ivy League athlete in track and field and cross country history. She won a total of seven NCAA titles (1 – cross country; 4 – indoor track; 2 – outdoor track) in her career. In 2014, she became a professional runner for New Balance. Urban legend has Abbey’s HS PR’s somewhere around 7:00 for the Mile!

At the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, she received considerable international media attention following an incident during a 5000m heat in which both she and New Zealander Nikki Hamblinfell. The two women helped each other finish the race and were allowed to compete in the final; however, D'Agostino had suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus and wasn't able to participate further. Both athletes were praised for their sportsmanship and "Olympic spirit",[4] and were subsequently awarded the Rio 2016 Fair Play Award by the International Fair Play Committee
