The quality of the education you get is entirely up to you. You need to be very independent to do well at Columbia, the university won't keep track of you. You have to take care of yourself, reach out to others yourself. But there are billions of opportunities all over the place! I acquired a fascinating research job with a well known research scientist guaranteed for the whole of my college career. I may well graduate with a published paper. New York is the greatest city in the world, and you can find anything in it. The students are friendly, the campus has clubs on everything. Take a course on theater, go see it live. Take a music course, go to a concert. Art course - free admission to the met. visit dozens of other art museums. you're just a subway ride and a student ticket away from dozens of operas, concerts, broadway, museums, the statue of liberty, two blocks away from Tom's Restaurant(from Seinfeld). What can I say, it's New York. Anything is possible. But don't go if you don't like the big city.

Warning: The core contains a whole lot of classes. I personally love it, but some don't. Also, if you want a winning football team, forget columbia.
