"It seems like about half the class is from Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Penn, etc. This is not something to be concerned about as the students were really down to earth, but it is something you might want to be aware of. Also, the rumour that columbia picks only good-looking people seems to be true, although it looks like they let the MD/PhD students slide on this requirement. They even hand out a facebook of current students during the interview. " Report Response
