Greenland has the highest rate of suicides among the world. Let's see, the weather is very cold; it's dark out often; it's sparsely populated; people rarely if ever come out to engage in activities; it's downright depressing.

Let's see if there are parallels to Cornell and NYU. Both are on the E. Coast where it snows during winter. The weather is cold, so it contributes to a melancholy. During college, both guys and gals get lonely if they lack a significant other, thus being single exacerbates this. At NYU the surrounding scenery can be romantic, but if you lack a significant other then thoughts of suicide/depression kick in. Cornell and the Ivies are putative for having extremely smart cookies, but these cookies aren't the most attractive; thus the propensity for promiscuity is abated.

Bottom line: when in college, don't ponder your life so much. Everything will fall in place as they were meant to be. Economy sucks = you won't get offers anytime soon; this is expected. But some take it personal.
