Please scroll down on the Columbia forum and read the topic:
----Barnard really "second-tier"?----
That should clarify your concerns.
In addition, I'd like to tell you that when I made my visit to Columbia, most of the CC women had some type of disgust with "Barnyards," as they called them-- because they take all the Columbia men, and there's none left etc etc etc etc
Your first question can be answered in the aforementioned forum. Barnard is not one of the undergraduate colleges of Columbia. It's only affiliated with it, however, Barnard students DO receive degrees that read "Columbia University."
The answer to your second question is: Yes. As many as you want. You can take every single class during your college career at Columbia, if you chose the right major (i'm unsure of which one that is? Most likely physics. I hear that the Physics/Math dept at Barnard is nonexisitent. Check out www.studentsreview.com and search "Barnard College." Click "Undergraduates" and see their comments on the school). I went to the info session, it's true.
The answer to your last question is: Yes, silly. I met several people who had best friends from Barnard etc etc etc etc... It's just that there is a tendency for CC students and SEAS students alike to look down on them. Some call it a "cheap way to get into Columbia."
Personally, I agree with another person when I say that "going to Barnard wouldn't be good for my mental health's sake, seeing Columbia across the street!"

i was thinking of applying to barnard RD if i didn't get into columbia ED, and i felt that...so barnard was not at the top of my list for well...my mental health. i didn't want to spend 4 years as a columbia reject.
however, 2 of my good friends will be there, and i'm really excited to be able to spend time with them while at columbia. i look forward to possibly taking classes together.
furthermore, i was under the impression that barnard is not only affiliated with columbia. it is a part of it, just like CC and SEAS are. the "affiliated schools" are say, the theological seminaries and julliard because those schools and CU have an agreement over dual degrees.
this is what i was told. (and this is why barnard kids get columbia univerisity, barnard college degrees) however, if you have a link showing the contrary, i'd love it see it.
