Describes the faculty as:
As my counselor told me; engineering should not be studied in an Ivy League school just because it is a label. I wish I have preferred another school I was admitted to such as Stanford, Cornell or even USC. Engineering in Columbia is totally trash and useless. It is a perfect school to study liberal arts however I cannot say the same thing for engineering majors.
The staff is extremely snobby and arrogant, teachers don't care about students concerns and lectures are given in auditoriums which are so crowded.
Because its located at the edge of the Harlem, Columbia is UNSAFE. There are so many crime cases taking place right outside of the CU's perimeters. People have been raped and got killed. I don't think that its worth for it. Paying 43,000 per year and getting raped or killed.
At the end of my sophomore year I got transferred to University of Southern California and now I'm living my dream. Los Angeles is a unique diverse place with a lot of culture and warm people who really friendly. I should have preferred going to the place that I like from the beginning rather then the place that only has label. For prospective students: I strongly recommend you to go to the school that you like rather than an Ivy League school. Stop thinking about the status for a while and think about your own happiness.
|With grammar like yours, I'm honestly shocked that you even got accepted into Columbia. Additionally, it probably would have been an intelligent idea to check out the school's engineering program beforehand. At least, that's what common sense tells me.|
|How is USC any safer than Columbia? USC is in the middle of Compton…|
|You should go to "MIT", the best engineering school in the world!!!|
|You were a fool to pass Stanford for Columbia. Stupid is as stupid does.|
|Tbh, If you're an engineering major, you should just go to state school and save your money. All successful engineers make about the same income after graduation regardless of prestige. My husband is the VP of his company in the engineering department, and he graduated from his state school with hardly any debt and now makes $200k plus bonus (and an office that has CoD game rooms, snow cone machines, and Nerf guns in his hallway). Just saying. Engineering is an advanced skill. You either know how to do it or you don't. People who know are the ones that are hired. College prestige hardly plays into the equation.
And USC is also in the ghetto. It's in the heart of bum-land. The only nice part is on campus, and maybe the one square block of LA Live.
Last- I don't know about you, but I love my experience at Columbia. I'm a finance major and so far it's been great. The accessibility to everything in NYC is unparalleled.
