I;m currently a junior here.BrightJournalism
I;m currently a junior here. I must say that there is a lot of work, but in the end and for internships it really helps. The teachers really know what they are talking about and the students are always open to help to. It is surrounded by New York so the food is great. And some dorms are singles, which is rare at most schools. I like this because it allowd you to have your privacy while at the same time have friends next door. All I can say is that it is the experience of a lifetime and it is definetly worth the money.

Columbia will be an excellent experience if you know what you're getting into. Use New York City to the fullest.

Question
Having graduated more than 15 years ago, IQuite BrightEconomics
Having graduated more than 15 years ago, I assume that the place has changed a lot, but I do have one comment that's still relevant. One big advantage of going to school in NYC is that people stick around afterwards. I still have many close friends from my college days, and a big reason is that so many have stayed in New York (mostly in Park Slope, Brooklyn). Obviously, places like Ithaca or Amherst don't have much post-college attraction, but even fairly big cities like Boston don't seem to hold people in their orbit nearly as much as New York.
