As we navigated our way through the picturesque enclosed upper Manhattan campus, students began emerging from class.
Instead of looking at their phones, everyone was engaged and smiling as they spoke about what had just transpired in the classroom.
Something unique about Barnard is that only professors teach courses–never TAs (teaching assistants) as opposed to Columbia. Also, the classes at Barnard tend to be more intimate & dedicated to women.
Barnard is located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. There is a subway station right on campus at 116th Street & Broadway & many bus stops, making it easy to get to anywhere in the city.
While there are plenty of clubs and on-campus activities, much of the social life takes place in and around New York. In fact, our client at Columbia said many students head downtown to the Village.
Barnard offers two options for the application process: Early Decision and Regular Decision. They read each part of every application in order to review each student contextually and holistically.
