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
|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.|
