    The quality of education looks impeccable, but the tuition is quite expensive... Measuring the quality of a job after graduating, I would say it does have a good bang for the buck.

    I got pretty decent financial aid so don't let cost stop you from applying

    Not going to sugarcoat it: Cornell is really expensive, and they continue to nickel-and-dime you after you get there. They have really good financial aid, and will meet demonstrated need. But unlike a lot of schools, there's no free printing, gym passes, or buses (first-year students do get free bus passes, but after that you'll want to buy one). Not necessarily a deal-breaker, but something to think about.

    Although Cornell is expensive, the school is very accommodating when it comes to financial aid in most cases. Depending on your financial background, the school will do its best to help you attend. Unfortunately, you have to pay for laundry, a gym membership, and parking, among other things.

    Everything about Cornell is expensive. Although it is a wonderful school, the tuition is very hefty. Unless the parents do not mind paying such a large sum of money or Cornell offered significant financial aid, Cornell would not be a price friendly option.
