College Opinions

What are y'alls opinions on the college you currently attend? I really want to know about Michigan and Columbia in particular. But really any school would be cool to hear about.

Columbia > Michigan

Both are well known schools though. If you got into both, you should feel good about that, because both are competitive. When it comes down to it, if you have an idea of what you're looking to study in school, look into which school has better programs (I'm sure both will have good programs) but see which one fits your specific needs more.

Take cost into consideration, would you be an in-state student at one, than at another? Did you get any scholarships or grants? If one's further away than another, is that an issue?

A lot of variables come into play when choosing the right school. Congratulations on your accepts by the way, if you got in to them at this point in time. 

I prefer carcinogens to endorphins.

Columbia has better brand name. Both schools are great for finance/accounting though.

I'm biased towards NYC, so I'd pick Columbia (should've actually applied back in hs).

if you're a rising senior and plan on applying to them and you already have some of your shit together, you could apply to both early (Columbia ED but UMich EA, but if you get into columbia, you have to go). In any case, both are fantastic schools. Columbia engineering is sort of seen as weaker than it's other branches, though. If you're thinking of going into finance, even though columbia doesn't have a business program, most people major in economics and they still get recruited (bc the university is in the city and it's an ivy)

I want to do management consulting as my profession once I graduate. I really have no desire to go for a grad degree. But what is your guy's opinion on incurring debt with your undergraduate degree?

I live in Florida, so our top in-state is University of Florida. I love the school, I'm a season ticket holder, and i could go for next to nothing. But I really want a more competitive school on my resume and I'd love to experience new places.

Did any of y'all take on any debt in college and how does it effect you? I'm leaning towards Michigan cause of their excellent management program and the sports.

OSU > Michigan (I'm not sure if that's even true)

Yeah, I'm not too aware of OSU. Braxton's fit to win the Heisman though.

ohio has very few black people so if you want to go then go

depends on where, the bigger cities(cleveland, cincinnati, columbus) actually have higher black percentages than cities like chicago, new york, LA etc. cincinnati is almost 50%black. if you are talking about OSU in particular it may be a different story, but i still don't think they have a particularly low percentage of black people.

unless you get into a top school for a major where you will make bank(medical, law, etc) i suggest you DO NOT GO INTO DEBT for school, or go into as little as possible. honestly cheaper state schools are just as good as private ones the vast majority of the time
July 15, 2013 @ 19:10:18
I start at OSU in the fall btw
July 15, 2013 @ 22:06:33
getting a job is very hard these days...don't fuck around and pick a good major 

Fucktard we been developed a ratio

I don't really see where this is going, but I'm a white kid. Demographics aren't really a problem for me as I have a real diverse group of bros.

Columbia will look 3x as good as a degree from MU. Dat ivy league game breh

MU has a top 3 business program and the party scene there is ten times that of Columbia.

Please don't let the party scene of the school have ANY determining factor to if you attend or not. College costs too much, and you're there for the education. As wack as it sounds, it's true. 

I prefer carcinogens to endorphins.

REVS, I can't quote you on mobile. But I defintely hear you. I worded that wrong. I should've said social scene. I'm not a big partier anymore, I just want a school with relatable and chill kids.

I can dig it, I might have worded what I said wrong too, partying is fun and shit, no doubt, but there just has to been a fine line, between it and your school work, I'm sure since you got into both of these schools, you're smart enough to know this without someone telling you.

doesn't sound like you want to get recruited by a firm to work in NY, but if you did, the numbers they take from columbia and michigan are around the same, even though columbia has no business...

and ross is top 10, maybe top 5, but not top 3. Cornell, upenn (wharton), notre dame are almost always consistently in front in rankings
July 16, 2013 @ 15:40:26
Lol at above comment about Mendoza (ND) and Johnson/Dyson? (Cornell). BusinessWeek loves those two schools even though their recruiting ain't that good. Neither of them are on par with Ross or even mcintire, although Cornell comes close. Op, Mich and Columbia DO NOT send similar numbers of kids to wall street each year. Columbia is m7, while Mich is tier 2 (maybe even closer to 3). Also, the number of kids you're competing against in Ross is far greater than that of Columbia. And guys he is just speculating. If he was actually accepted, he would know where he is going by now considering the enrollment deadline was quite awhile ago.

I went to UF for undergrad, graduated a yr ago, now im in Columbia for Grad school.
Choosing UF was one of the best choices ive made. It was cheap and you get out of there with real world experience- which is what matters more to some employers. 
At columbia, from what I see with undergrads, you're too busy with school work to actually find AS MANY jobs an internships as you could at UF. 
I know you aren't choosing between UF and Columbia-- but dont overlook it. Columbia you get a nice looking degree- at UF you get experience-  and it is considered a "public ivy"- plus the parties are GREAT. lol

bruh this is 2013, the college dosnt matter for shit it just depends if its in a medical marijuana state. Get wit it
July 17, 2013 @ 17:37:47
Going to a top school is good and all but you're honestly just paying for the name and connections. 

What it really boils down to is your chosen major and what you plan to do with it.
