On-campus Recruiting Weekends

Top-ranked domestic (US) applicants being considered for an admissions offer are typically invited to campus to interview. Recruitment interviews and interactions are an important part of our admissions process; should an invited applicant be unable to attend our Recruitment Weekend, alternate arrangements can be made (i.e. Skype interview). We are unable to offer interview invitations for foreign applicants residing outside of the United States, but we do hold ‘on-line’ interviews via Skype.

The Field of GGD will host its Recruitment Weekend on February 1-4, 2018 and February 22-25, 2018. During their visit, prospective students will have ample opportunities to talk with faculty and current graduate students, examine the facilities, and explore the excellent quality of living that Cornell University and Ithaca offer.

Students typically arrive Thursday evening, spend Friday meeting and interviewing with faculty, attending seminars or student led poster sessions that highlight the diverse research performed in the GGD Field, and end the day with a relaxing dinner. Saturday activities are coordinated by our graduate students and usually include a tour of the Campus and Ithaca area (highlighting housing opportunities) and other social activities to be determined. Attendees depart on Sunday.
