My education at Columbia was amazing.Political Science
My education at Columbia was amazing. It prepared me superbly for my chosen career path. I felt fortunate to be in the company of so many bright and brilliant students and professors. Ther internships are fantastic. I found the administration no better or worse than the bureaucracies of any other large institutions I've dealt with (actually, the U.S. State Dept. is a paradigm of dysfunctionality). And NYC is a cornucopia of cultural, culinary and social opportunities.Let me state here that I, too, find many of the negative reviews here to be suspicious. The bad English, contradictory ratings vs narratives and hollow-sounding condemnations of the academics and student body tell me someone is, or some persons are, inundating this rating site with bogus reviews for whatever nefarious reason. Also, check out the reviews on other similar sites. You'll find very different comments and tone - and written in polished English. Bottom line: take with a big grain of salt most of the negative reviews you read here.
