No. Cornell does not track or consider "demonstrated interest" in the admission process. Of course, we encourage prospective students to learn about the university. Exploring our Visit & Connect website, joining our mailing list, and connecting with us on social media are all good ways to learn about Cornell. We also encourage you to contact us if you have questions or need additional guidance. But calling, emailing, or visiting campus simply to demonstrate your interest in Cornell University is not necessary and will not have any impact on your admission decision. Visiting campus is not required nor expected of applicants. Students can articulate their fit and interest in Cornell through specific essay questions in the application.
