In general the professors here are great and I have found a few of my philosophy professors to be extremely brilliant, but the administration really can't be worse that it offsets all the benefits brought by the faculty. I never expected to be treated in this way and I am trying my best to work on my transfer app.

If you want to be treated as a person, don't come to Columbia. There is basically no flexibility here and no one really f*cking cares about you. I went to talk to a Dean and he even told me "well then you may choose to leave." WTF seriously how can a dean say this to an enrolled student? You will also frequently hear from your academic advisor(not a professor, just a random administrative person who can't find a better paying job) or some other staff that "this is the rule" or something like that. Well, you know what? "Rules" here are always unreasonable and never flexible.

I can't hate this place more.
