I had a moderately fair time with the financial aid offices, but I have heard horror stories from fellow classmates. They definitely have a horrible response system, with emails not being answered for days, sometimes weeks, and the phone lines are constantly busy. I would say that if you're trying to get them on the phone, be ready to put the phone on speaker while you do other work, because they'll put you on hold for a while.

They're difficult to deal with and most people didn't know what was going on with my aid. They just kept telling me "there's nothing written on your profile" and sent me to talk to someone else.
Finally, I did receive the help I needed

If you are not very familiar with the process and you are already a student on campus, there are resources to help you with the application process on campus. However, if you are a high school senior planning on attending the university, then getting help via phone or email can be irritating if you are expecting anything close to an immediate response. As the deadline for the application approaches, the financial aid office becomes more tied up with the large population of incoming undergraduates, so it's best to assemble all the questions you can think of before you contact the office of financial aid so that you can be on your way in one contact attempt. How smoothly the process will go for an applicant depends on how easy it is for the applicant to gather all the forms necessary.

I don't receive financial aid, however many people that I know do. From what I've heard, Cornell is extremely accommodating to those in need. Were it not for the efforts of the financial aid program there are a great number of deserving and hard working people who would not have the opportunity to receive such a quality education.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
