Andy Bernard went to Cornell (graduating in 1995 with an unspecified Bachelor of Arts) and is smug about it. He was, by his own admission, not a particularly good student.

Academic careerEdit

Andy Bernard was not particularly gifted academically.

  • By his own admission, he "never studied once." ("Gay Witch Hunt")
  • He failed Introduction to Philosophy and had to take it again. ("Business Ethics")

As a high school student, Andy tried to lead a student protest against standardized tests, but chickened out and took the SATs anyway. ("Shareholder Meeting") He scored a 1220, which is the 80th percentile in general, but is a poor score for a Cornell student, putting him in the bottom 25% of the student population. His poor score contributed to his being wait-listed at Cornell, but he was ultimately admitted because his father donated a building to the school. ("Branch Wars")
