You will be miserable here. Its nice to have access to the city, but you will feel so bogged down with school work and the expensiveness of the city you will live in the Columbia bubble and rarely see New York as much* as you thought you would. All of your friends will always be "too busy" to do any fun stuff with you. Everybody is in therapy because they're so depressed. It's #1 on the list of most stressful schools and rightfully so. The whole atmosphere will brign you down.
