This is an amusing thread. I visited CLS late Saturday night (long story, lol), and the building really is attractive on the inside. One of my own classmates said it made Fordham look shabby, so I tried to kill her with a stiletto. (Visit schools after drinking at your own peril.) If we disturbed anyone who was studying, my sincere apologies.
To the person who asked about CLS students: they are very cool people. I don't exactly know the whole class of 2012, but my friends up there are some of the kindest and most welcoming people imaginable, and wonderful company. Also, they have impeccable taste in food.

= amazing. Among the actual people I've met/hung out with in real life, I've never seen the smallest hint of elitism. All the Columbians I know are very chill, and refreshingly normal, if frighteningly talented. I adore them, though I always leave feeling like my own list of accomplishments is wanting in comparison.
I recommend visiting the school. (Preferably earlier than midnight, lol). I'm honestly shocked by how many people pick a school sight unseen, and the main Columbia campus is surpassingly lovely, and worth seeing.
