I'm a Industrial Engineering student and I can say that I'm not satisfied about my major at this school at all. The name of the university and its location were the reasons that made me choose Columbia. 3 weeks after the beginning of my freshman year I realized that I have done a terrible mistake.
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.
