康奈尔大学简介

康奈尔大学 位于美国 纽约 州的伊萨卡市。始建于1865年,是由艾兹拉·康奈尔创建的。在所有“常春藤盟校”中,康奈尔是历史最短的一个。它拥有本科生13000多人,遥遥领先于其他“常春藤盟校”,让人想起“百川归海,有容乃大”的古话。与完全私立的其它“常春藤盟校”相比,康奈尔大学的体制也是别具特色的,她是“公私合营”式的大学。在七所学院中,农业与生物学院、人类与环境学院、工业与劳工关系学院是公立学院,受纽约州 政府管辖。而其他四所学院:艺术科学学院、建筑艺术与规划学院、工程学院和旅游管理学院则是私立的。康奈尔大学汇集了公立与私立学院的优点,在历年举行的美国大学 评比中,康奈尔大学的钗h学科都排在前10名之内,如农学系、化学系、数学系和宾馆管理系。

The personal statement is an essay, generally under 1,000 words, which is designed to give the selection committee a sense of who you are and how closely your goals and strengths match the ideals of a specific fellowship.
