Let's see, my thoughts during the 3 months prior to starting my college education at Columbia consisted of such: "NYC!" "Such great parties!" "Best of the best professors!" "Great job opportunities!" "Awesome, hipster students!" "IM SO EXCITED!"

However, aside from being in NYC, which is great when I get a chance to actually experience it, attending Columbia was the worst choice i've made…ever? The students are obsessive over grades, the social scene SUCKS. worse than i could ever imagine. the professors have a

couldn't be bothered
attitude about everything, and are far from helpful.

Although I have remained untouched, many of my friends have gotten mugged right outside the campus gates…I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that Columbia is located right next to HARLEM?

I got into so many other great schools.. Penn, Cornell, Boston College, Princeton… I would choose anything over this pile of crap
