"I had interviewed at 11 schools, many of which compete with Columbia for students. I must say that the students at Columbia were by far the happiest and laid back, which I found...interesting due to their rigorous curriculum. Furthermore, I'm used to schools that concentrate on good, solid teaching. Columbia seems to have committed physicians and researchers thrilled to teach students. In fact, they have/had a nobel laureate teaching 1st years neuroscience (1st years!). That, in my mind, is impressive and humbling."
"Umm...the school is fantastic. nothing really disappointed me except for the fact that food might be hard to find. But who cares? We could all shed a couple pounds here and there. =)"
"Bard Hall isn't that bad. I've heard rumors that it was nasty, but it's not any worse than most of the other schools in Manhattan. Plus, Bard has lounges, a roof with a fantastic view of the Hudson and GW bridge, and a well-equipped gym all in one building."
"Of all the schools I've been to (and I've been to a lot), this one has become my first choice. Top-notch students, top-notch faculty, top-notch facilities, in the top-notch city of all time. Fantastic school! I hope I get in!"
