  10. That's among what I heard from someone I know who graduated from Columbia Social Work. She was an international student and she said people were clique-y. The exact words from her email: "Although everyone was doing social work, many people have sub-conscious presumptions that are clearly shown in the way they talk and interact with others. This was something that bothered me, however, I was able to find classmates and friends that were not judgmental."
  11. Nope! I didn't find out yet. I kind of jumped the gun by committing before waiting to hear back from all schools, but Columbia just doesn't make sense to attend for me!
