POLL: Biggest Regrets

Print More

As the end of the year is fast approaching, and I am basking in the lull between the end of prelims and the beginning of finals, I have a lot of time to reflect on this year.

My first year at Cornell has been amazing, but there were definitely some moments that I wish I could go back and do differently.

For this week’s poll, I thought it would be interesting to see what peoples’ biggest regrets of the year were. Since most people would not willingly confess their worst moments to me, I decided that figuring out what kinds of things students here regretted the most would shed some light on how this year has been.

Looking back on this year, in which category does your biggest regret fall?
