While a Columbia educationSuper BrilliantPreVet and Veterinary
While a Columbia education is good, the open-ness of campus life is better. Some nights in the residence hall we have masturbation socials and even my faculty residents have partaken as well as sorority girls. Anyone can leave a comment on this page!

I'm from Texas, and New York couldn't beQuite BrightEnglish
I'm from Texas, and New York couldn't be more awesome! Make sure you visit the campus--it's absolutely beautiful to some and claustrophobic for others, so find out into which category you fit. The best thing about Columbia is that you can study absolutely anything you're interested in--and practically all the departments are top-notch. The worst thing, probably, is that you have to do almost all logistical work yourself. Very rarely are advisors or counselors helpful in working with you to achieve your goals. Definitely know about the Core Curriculum, for which Columbia is famous, before deciding to attend. Some people love it, as it opens up their intellectual spheres and allows them to explore academic subjects they otherwise never would; some hate it, as they feel it constricts them from focusing on what they really want to study. If you're not sure what you want to study--or if you're interested in something interdisciplinary/offbeat, Columbia is very likely a great school for you.
