    Make sure you really love New York City before committing to Columbia! I had never visited NYC before attending but after a rough beginning I have learned to like NYC. Columbia is a very independent school in a super independent city. If you're looking for a person to hold your hand, go elsewhere. But if your ready for a challenge and are ready to be tested in all areas of life, then this is the place for you.

    Try to go to office hours. Sometimes that is the difference between you receiving a B- and a B. Don't get caught up in the hype during orientation week, also known as NSOP (New Student Orientation Program). Many students, afraid of not making enough friends, add the phone numbers of almost every student they meet. However, this causes one to lose focus because they become worried about keeping up with acquaintances and hanging out. I follow this rule of thumb: Only add their number after you've had three real conversations. An example of a real conversation is talking about what state/country you guys came from, your family, finding study partners, or a 1-hour non-awkward conversation at Starbucks, not a fake conversation about favorite colors or matching outfits. That way you won't end up with 50 numbers of classmates whom you briefly saw twice at the beginning of the semester. And yes, you will at least meet 50 new students during NSOP.
