The administration and the professors don't care. Compared to schools that I got into, Columbia ranks quite low on social life as well as development. There's a reason why Columbia does not have many Rhodes, Marshall, or Goldwater scholars: because the administration doesn't care about its students.

1) Extremely poor social experience

2) Poor teaching, learn everything by yourself

3) Competitive and stressful

4) Aloof administration treats you terribly

5) Outlets are few, NYC is expensive and 116th street is far from civilization
