In Reply to: Cornell or Syracuse posted by Chad Christie on March 18, 2004 at 05:33:38:
I went to Syracuse, so maybe I'm alittle biased. I too got into Cornell and Cuse, but decided on 'Cuse. I was extremely happy with my decision. It has a very good, well rounded program, and prepares you well for becoming a practicing architect. They have also taken many good profs. away from Cornell.
I felt Cornell is too theory based. I had a friend who went there at the same time as I was at Syracuse, and he didn't do a tangible project until 2nd. year. I have also worked with people at different firms who went to Cornell and they had no idea how to build after graduation.
Cornell has a goregeous campus, but Syracuse's is really nice too. But Cornell's architecture facility is a dump, while Syracuse's is very good. Also, the campus life at Syracuse is sooo much better. You have a good nightlife scene, both on campus and in town, and great athletics that make it an exciting place to be (nothing like a Cuse bball game!). Ithaca is so small and remote, not much to do there. Let's just say alot of people there come to Cuse for fun....
Just my .02 Good luck with your decision.
