Columbia University Graduate Reviews
After one semester I would only give three stars for my graduate experience at the School of Professional Studies, within Applied Analytics program. Initially my early decision application was not reviewed until August, when the expected wait for decisions was in March. The school has very few opportunities for grants and scholarships, and few resources for financial aid advice. As a commuter student who mostly takes online classes, having to pay over $500 in campus fees per semester that I am unable to take advantage of is unreasonable. I feel the education I'm being provided does not make up for the extremely high tuition and fees.
Columbia is simply outstanding in every way. You can't beat the academics, the opportunities it provides, or the location!
Columbia is a wonderful, historical institution that fosters creative thinking and education. Here, I have access to some of the greatest minds of our time. My professors are all very accessible and have so much knowledge and experience to share. The only downside is the bureaucracy and how long it takes to get anything administratively done.
