Columbia is a fantastic place to learn. All of my professors are at the top of their respective fields and at least seem like they care about us as students. The advising program is kind of shoddy, but you have to understand that this isn't Barnard or you local community college; they simply aren't going to hold your hand until you understand how to live life. The atmosphere is challenging and if you are weak of spirit perhaps you should consider a softer place, like Yale or Princeton. Everyone here (except for the kids in the "secret society") is super liberal, so if that's not what you're about you shouldn't come here.

All in all, I feel like I'm getting the very best education possible and that I am surrounded by what could be the leaders of tomorrow. Everyone I've met here (excluding some athletes) has been exceptionally intelligent and I like to think some of that has rubbed off on me. This place is fantastic and would be well-suited to an independent-minded person who wants to enjoy a world-class university and the wonders of New York City.

P.S. Bring shitloads of money b/c nothing in this town comes cheap…
