About Me


I’m Sush, a rising sophomore as of summer 2014. I’m an international student from New Delhi, India and a lot of my Cornell stories might have a different perspective because of that.

At Cornell, I have found homes in the Computer Science Department and a beautiful co-op house named Whitby. Although I’m a CS major, I’m a big fan of a liberal arts education, which is why is I’m the college of Arts and Sciences and hope to find a non-technical concentration as well. I like to call this other concentration “something else”. Thanks to Cornell’s unending course catalogue, it’s been a year and I only have a shortlist so far.

Feel free to contact me with questions you may have about anything Cornell! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Hello, I’m from Korea, and I’m also planning to apply for Cornell for next year for Computer Science. I know its quite late, as there’s only 2 weeks left, but I’ve been researching here and there about Cornell, but I couldn’t find one thing. I found that there is computer science course for both School of Arts and Science as well as School of engineering. How are the two different? and what do you like about the school? Thanks.

  8. Hello. My name is Rosa Perez, and Iโ€™m involved with the Legacy 2000 program at Legacy High School in Broomfield, Colorado. This program is designed to challenge students who have enthusiasm for science, math, and/or technology by fostering studentsโ€™ passions and encouraging students to research ideas, develop ideas, and implement those ideas into reality. Furthermore, a key component of L2k is learning how to communicate and network with people.
    I am investigating what it feels like to attend Cornell University and would like to ask you a few questions. If this is acceptable, please let me know by contacting me at rper57822@adams12.org

  12. Dear Sush, I graduated from Cornell with a BA in Economics all the way back in 1986 and have a daughter named Mirai. She will likely apply to Cornell soon as she’s currently a junior at a high school in Oakland, CA. I absolutely loved reading your blog, and I think she will too. Combining your technical background with your interest in the liberal arts is highly commendable, and I think will serve you well in an increasingly complex world that faces seemingly intractable problems. Since we are flying to the East Coast on Sunday, I’m debating whether to drive Mirai up to Ithaca the following afternoon (Dec 21) to look around Tuesday morning (Dec 22), before driving back to NYC. I know it will be very quiet with finals over and no formal tours available. But I imagine there’ll be some undergraduates lingering around, as there always were in my day. If you have any advice, I’d welcome reading it, but no worries if not. Best wishes for your continued growth and success. Vivek (Class of ’86)
