I've seen listings for collegetown apts for 650-750/mo. Is the collegetown area ghetto?

Theres a wide variety of housing options in Collegetown. I would also pay attention to what the listing is defining as "Collegetown" as usually the craigslist ads have a wide definition for the area. Think of the intersection of College Ave. and Dryden as the center of Collegetown and farther you get from there the cheaper it should be. Ithaca Renting and 312 have a lot of the "nicer" apartments in Collegetown. Most everything else is probably an apartment or room in a house.

I got a place at Gun Hill with 2 other roommates, fully furnished, for only $1278/month total (cable and internet included as well). 3 BR/1 Bath, about half a mile from campus, free shuttle.

Did Mark Milstein do the SGE session? I've heard he tries to liven things up.

I attended the Strategic Marketing and SSO immerision sessions. The marketing immersion program is amazing. The SSO immersion is definitely for people that love operations and strategy. It felt a bit too technical for my tastes. The site visits with top companies almost sold me on it.

hmm i'm still shopping around. i only made it to the capital markets and asset management overview. but as far as career prospects, seems to me like investment banking places people pretty well (and not necessarily in investment banking).

i'm kind of wondering how much immersions actually matter as far as targeting employers...i think the reality is that there are plenty of people who go on to companies/careers that seem illogical given their specific immersion. assuming that's true, i wonder if the school places an undue/excessive amount of focus on "choosing the right immersion asap".

young_gun can you elaborate on the placement of those in the IB immersion and what other career paths it opens doors to if not IB?

I had a great time this past weekend. The weekend just got better as time went by - on Sunday afternoon I didn't want to leave.
DJ was well-planned and not at all showy ie ...there wasn't any artificialty to it.

The highlights for me were Saturday night at the museum (never danced under a dinosaur before!), the student hosted dinner, Saturdays lunch with a faculty of your choice, the housing tour which I felt was very useful, and staying with a student host - you really got to see what the Johnson School was all about.

I found the "team dynamics" exercise pretty lame - was astounded that people could come up with so many lessons from being blindfolded and trying to pitch a tent!

Out of the core faculty, I found Vrinda Kadiyali's enthusiasm outstanding - definitely would enjoy taking a class with her.

I attended the Consulting focus and Customized option immersion sessions - and didn't learn anything other than I won't be doing the customized immersion.

Overall I made friends with many people who I found interesting and humble (very important for me) and I'm very happy I'm going to Cornell.

Go BIG RED!

The feeling I got from speaking with students was that employers don't care what immersion you did. It's an ice-breaker kind of question at most. If you're 100% sure about what career you want to pursue - you obviously want to take that specific immersion, but if you're unsure just take the immersion that's most interesting to you - recruiters don't care.

I'm not sure how many people are in the IB immersion this year (I went to Asset Management immersion session), but if I added up the stats correctly, it looks like there were 13 internship offers (11 US, 2 int'l) for the Class of 2010.

It was in the red Cornell binder that they gave us. There is seperate info for the FT and internship offers (it's on the light blue-green papers).
