| Columbia is a good school of course, but there are some things to be weary of. Not all, but many students are very arrogant and very tough to approach (most schools have this). As far as facilities I cannot complain at all, there are an abundance of resources for all students to use and libraries are kept orderly and quiet. Bathrooms for the most part are well kept but not always. As far as school work, it's not as challenging as I thought it would be, but you still learn a lot. GPA's won't suffer as long as you are organized and allow yourself adequate studying time. In New York there is always something to do and plenty of places to go. Social life was great when you weren't swamped by work. |

| The students at Columbia are quite simply amazing. Whether they are geniuses in some scientific field or demonstrated civic leaders, you will meet a diverse array of people here.|
Not surprisingly, the academics are rigorous, and you will be surrounded by peers who are highly academically engaged in and outside the classroom. Classes are generally small, ~20 is average. The professors vary in style of teaching, but they are always receptive to questions and help.The community requires you to be proactive and reach out for opportunities, which there is certainly no dearth of at the university. Student advising is satisfactory and improving. However, in my opinion, the quality of the advisors is not extraordinary and could have more room for improvement.
