Notoriety

Cornell has a fairly prestigious reputation as an Ivy League school. I have heard nothing bad about Cornell and with a few Google searches, I didn't seem to find many bad things about it besides the acceptance rate. A famous quote from the founder: " I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study." - Ezra Cornell
