Cornell can be a wonderful or awful place to be an undergraduate. You will recieve very little guidance and even less handholding. What you will recieve is a course catalog as thick as a phonebook and access to the resources of one of the worlds great universities. If you are ambitious, brave, and capable of self direction then there is not anywhere that a Cornell education can't take you. The opportunities are truly amazing if you put you search them out. However, If you expect someone to lay out a path for you, reach out to you with opportunities, or go out of their way to help you then you are out of luck. Cornell is about as far from the liberal arts college experience as you can get. Great research university, but mediocre "college".
