Where do Columbia and Mount Sinai sit in the grand scheme of things?

didn't you post before that you were looking for a non-malignant program?.... In that case, I would avoid the former program you mentioned

I would say in NYC, Columbia is clearly the top as far as reputation goes. Cornell is a distant second (primarily because of the lack of autonomy)
NYU & Mt. Sinai are a close third.
Albert Einstein lags behind the other academic programs

the question is do you have to be in new york. if you do both are solid programs. that being said columbia has the best rep of the 5 in the city. mt sinai, cornell, and nyu are all great but unless you have to be in ny, there are better programs out there. compared to other programs in the northeast, i think columbia falls somewhere below penn and above bid.

My impression was that within the city, Columbia and Mt. Sinai now have the best reps w/the Mt Sinai residents being happier. Outside the city the ivy league name means something more. "Columbia" is a national name and if you want to leave nyc later *maybe* it would be easier from Columbia.
