    Hi everyone,

    I am putting the finishing touches on my "Why Cornell" secondary essay, and am wondering if anyone knows if "Weill Medical College of Cornell University" is commonly referred to as simply "Weill." While I believe "Feinberg" and "Pritzker" are commonly used as substitutes for their respective longer names, I have never seen "Weill" used alone -- the shortest I've seen on their website is "Weill Cornell" -- and thus wanted to make sure I wouldn't sound funny or overly casual in my statement if I use it.

    I suppose this question sounds a bit ridiculous, but maybe someone can understand where I'm coming from.

    Cheers

      You can't go wrong calling it Cornell. Weill Cornell is okay too (but more characters). The adcom will know what you mean if you say Weill but it is better to use the name it uses itself.

      Thanks LizzyM and others who posted helpful responses. My question was essentially if anyone knew if they ever call themselves just "Weill," and I guess the answer is no.
