Some parts of Cornell are part of SUNY, if i remember correctly.
Yup--darn Aggies. =^) J/k. Cornell's just weird that way. Not, I suppose, that it would've made a difference to me *personally* if Arts & Sciences were SUNY, since I'd've been out-of-state no matter *what* state I showed up in. Colleges smack dab in a city? <remembering her one tour of NYC> I guess. It's a weird thought, but mainly because I've been in Nowhere--er, Ithaca--for the past 4 years. ^_^ YHL
