"Columbia is an amazing place. Much has been said about how dangerous Washingotn Heights is and how ghetto Bard Hall is, but its mostly all hype. If you have always lived somewhere really nice, Columbia might be a little uncomfortable for you. Otherwise I think that it is a wondrful place. I find Columbia especially attractive as a place to become fluent in medical Spanish." Report Response
