"Pros: I think the education attained a Columbia School of Nursing is state of the art. The education we receive is on par with what the medical and dental students receive. Cons: I think because the Nursing Program is so accelerated, we tend to be at a disadvantage with clinical skills (compared to other schools). But that quickly changes the more we are actually in clinic with preceptors."

"I get a great education and get the opportunity to live in a great city. The cost of living is the only con."

"I am enrolled in Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, Department of Environmental Health Sciences. A huge change from my undergraduate experience, the faculty here are available and open to students. They will talk with you and both encourage as well as network you into the field you want to work in. The amount of work is high, and the city is very expensive to live in, but in exchange for the inspiring and fulfilling knowledge combined with incredible and wonderful faculty and students - it's an experience I wouldn't ever trade."

"Nursing Program Pros - faculty members are available outside of the classroom to provide support, there are many clinical and research opportunities within the school and in the surrounding area, global health opportunities are available. Cons - school and cost of living is expensive, need for more student and faculty diversity."

"Columbia's Physical Therapy program is very challenging but very exciting. The faculty is very supportive and they do everything in their power to help their students succeed. The area around the campus and hospital is safe, but don't wander too far off campus since it is not the best area. The cost of living is relatively affordable, considering it's in New York City. Columbia has connections to so many different places for affiliations both in and out of the country."

"PROS- great integration across topics in the core curriculum - famous, important professors who are doing the main research in their respective fields - can't beat living in NYC and the opportunities that affords - name recognition of Columbia CONS- Core curriculum is extremely taxing, leaves no time for work (which a lot of people in a professional degree program might like) - not the greatest neighborhood"

"A unique combination of subjects, accessibility to courses from different disciplines and schools. Teachers are great. High workload, the program is isolating in that way. Not enough financial support."

"Advantage: 1. University Brand: This may get you almost every interview in this field. 2. This is a two-year program so you will have enough time to search a job. 3. There are not many students in this program so the opportunities are much more for each. 4. Medical center is a great place. Disadvantage: 1. For course, there are just two electives. And wo cannot select many courses in other schools. 2. In New York, everything is finance. So it is a little frustrating for us."
