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. ^_^
