Columbia University in the City of New York Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (17)
I felt like a number, classes were huge and I didn't feel like any of the professors cared about me as a student but rather selling their latest text book. The worst experience was career advising during my undergraduate experience and as an alumni. I would hope that this issue is addressed for future students.
Great school with a lot of connections and top rate teachers. It is a worthwhile experience but very rigorous in nature.I would think about how committed you are to edcuation and academia before coming here. The architecture course takes up a lot of time and requires serious commitment if you want to do well.I highly recommend this school if you want an education that will change how you view the world.
As high quality as much of the instruction in the program was, and as academically demanding as it promises to be to the point that medical school is a breeze by all points of comparison (this is according to other graduates), the expense of the program unfortunately does not justify the benefits of completing it. In many ways, I wish I had taken the courses at a public institution, at less of an expense, to achieve comparable results.
The pre-medicine curriculum at Columbia University is second to none. The courses are challenging yet fulfilling. Moreover, the Post-Baccalaureate Program in the School of Professional Studies at Columbia University provided me with the freedom and flexibility to enroll in excellent medical school prerequisite courses while participating in various team sports.
Great program. Lots of experienced mentors and professors with deep industry experience. Practical and invaluable defense training for senior leadership. Global program , so you get to meet and learn from a diverse cohort from different backgrounds and regions and industries.
Good school, but little help with obtaining employment for graduates
Columbia is a wonderful place to get the best of both a college experience and the experience of living in New York City. There are good reasons beside the prestige of the school that it's so hard to get into.
I had a great experience. Most professors and courses are fantastic. The clubs and events including study trips abroad are really exceptional. The career management center was not very helpful for international students seeking opportunities in the US.
I found Columbia challenging, but I loved it. Going to college in New York provided an invaluable set of experiences, academic and otherwise. Columbia also has a strong history of students committed to social justice, and I met a lot of incredible, passionate, brilliant people there.
Columbia Business School provided the ideal combination of academic rigor, career guidance, and community support that I had hoped for in my MBA experience. I have nothing but glowing things to say about the school, professors, administrators, students and alumni and am honored and humbled to be a part of this amazing network of business leaders.
