Hi, on another thread, Veronica stated that
Columbia is too expensive and I understand that their program is shifting to a 3 year program so it is really going to jack up the price.
I know this is not a sprint, but one of the things that really turned me off from the Columbia Post-Bacc program was that it was a mandated 2 years with no summers. It doesn’t necessarily reduce your courseload in the Fall - just prevents you from taking courses in the Summer. Anyhow, I agree that the price is just too high…I’m having a difficult accepting $20k for one year, much less $40k for two. Well, is this true that they’re are shifting to a 3 year program now? Do you have any idea when? That would make the program $60k then, if not more. I do understand the wisdom in the oft-quoted mantra that this is a marathon, not a sprint, but if I wanted to spread this out, I’d just do it in my local university where I can pay less and have lot more flexibility in terms of being able to take course in the summer, etc. Anyhow, just wondering if I could get more information on the 3-year shift and the rationale behind it.
