this may sound stupid, but is cornell really the type of school with a high suicide rate and no individual attention

Hey dude! I'm a freshman at Cornell and I can tell you that all that is myth. I'm having a great time and this university never stops making me say wow! Just take a look at my screen name - it says it all.

High suicide rate... not true. Individual attention... you can find it if you want it, but you won't get it handed over on a plate. I will add that in my intro bio class, with 500-600 people, I was able to talk to the professor individually on many occasions.

CORNELL IS AWESOME.
I went to a fun state school last year and I'm having just as good a time now.

High suicide rate- a myth
Individual attention- Some of your classes will be extremely small (20 or less) and some will be extremely large (400+ student lectures). However, if you make an effort, you will be able to get individual attention from either professors or TA's in most of your classes.

"High suicide rate- a myth "
Cornell is known for high suicides because it's so easy to jump off the bridges...I heard that it's a long drop onto hard rocks.
The class size is the same at all those school, whether its Harvard, cornell or stanford...the intro classes are large (about 150), but the more advanced classes are about 35 or so.
If you want small classes, you'll need to go to a arts college such as amherst, not a university.

cornell only has a rep for high suicide rates because 60 minutes? ran a special about college suicides and used cornell's gorges as footage. i don't think cornell's actual suicide rate is significantly higher than the national average.

if you're messed up enough to commit suicide, it really doesn't matter what college you go to.

No, Cornell hardly fits its reputation as a suicide school.
