To whom is may concern,

My name is Anna Yang and I am a student from Canada. I am currently a member of Canada’s WSDC delegation, going to Bali for the World Championship’s next summer. Debate is a large part of my life, and I plan to continue to participate and compete throughout my undergraduate years in university.

I am posting to inquire about Cornell University’s debate program. I’m currently a high school senior, and Cornell is my top choice. As such, I have some questions about the debate program at your school, and would greatly appreciate any sort of guidance you could provide me.

To start, how early can I start getting involved in debate/is there a novice program for freshmen? If so, what entails the selection process? Is there any prep I can do ahead of time?

Thank you very much for your time! I look forward to your correspondence.
