About this livestream


You’ve probably spent a lot of time thinking about your college applications — but what happens after you actually get in?

In this episode of A day in the life, Moriah will be going over her daily life as a student at Cornell. She’ll be discussing her experiences at Cornell to give you an idea of a typical week in the life of a student there.

Moriah will not only be covering classes, but also her extracurriculars, favorite eating places, the best study lounges, and more! Drop by to ask a few questions or stay for the whole stream for an in-depth look at what life is like at this top-tier university.

Your host

Undergrad College: Cornell University '21

Major: Policy Analysis & Management

Work Experience: Outside of mentoring students on CollegeVine, I’m interested in finance and it’s intersection with the fashion industry. I currently work in finance for an international consumer packaged goods company.

My Admissions Story: Throughout high school I was especially interested in math and science and focused my college applications on schools with good science and pre-med programs. When I got to college I took my first introductory chemistry class with an incredibly difficult professor (he is one of the AP Chemistry test writers every year). After that, I decided to switch gears and focus on public policy as another way that I could help people.
