WHAT I LIKED

I was pushed from the moment I arrived on campus all the way thru my last assignment. I never felt like there was an easy way, and I never felt like anyone was wasting time. The level of encouragement and support you receive truly helps you to become the person you want to be by the time of graduation.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

All of your time and energy is needed to succeed at a school like this. You must both take advantage of the academic study, as well as the amazing social and cultural opportunities both the Columbia network, and NYC have to offer. You must be disciplined, judicious, and efficient with your time and energy, always.

WHAT I LIKED

Columbia is exactly what I expected it to be. The professors are amazing, I feel very academically advanced and satisfied.

WHAT I LIKED

I truly enjoy the educational experience at Columbia. The courses are very challenging, but also push your knowledge much further. Columbia makes it easy to bond with your peers regardless of the workload. The libraries are one of the primary places where students hang out. Followed by empty classrooms or get-togethers planned by Student Life.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I believe the financial aid department could do a better job helping low-income students. While it is a great school, no one should find themselves not being able to find a way out financially.

3.0

WHAT I LIKED

I like the opportunities presented, and I like being in the city. Meeting other students who are also passionate about their education is good.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

This is one of, if not the most expensive university in the country, and I am not entirely sure I am getting the most bang for my buck. This is a for-profit institution, and it often shows in how they handle certain situations. Also, campus life is not super vibrant.
