Is Columbia well known overseas? Most internationals that I talk to give me blank stares when I mention anything about Columbia.

What is the point of your post Humbleservant? Some of your other posts give the impression that you have a problem with Columbia.

I really like Columbia, but I've heard some disconcerting things about it. I always thought it was well known, but I'm finding otherwise. I'd really like honest opinions on this, instead of flaming.

Its very well known. And trust me more ppl have heard of Columbia than all the major LACs and most of the Ivies. I didn't even know of UPenn or Dartmouth til High School. Dude its a great school and remember its about education. You'll be fine.

I only found out about Columbia when I watched the Sopranos. Other than that I think I heard of UPenn and Dartmouth more than Columbia.

I live in Southern California. I think a few people from my school applied to harvard and princeton, a few to brown and upenn (i don't know of any who applied to dartmouth, cornell or yale, but i could be wrong). 10 people applied to columbia. People definitely have heard of Columbia- and I would tend to agree about Upenn and Dartmouth- I knew about Dartmouth cause I knew some locals who went there, but I didn't know it was an ivy til this past summer. So.... yeah.

As far as overseas, people tend to know about Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Princeton, MIT, CalTech, and UC Berkeley (mostly graduate schools or engineering). Actually, some places don't know about Yale and some places don't know about Princeton. It depends on the country you are talkin bout.
Columbia is probably known in Western Europe, otherwise I'd say it doesn't have so much of a 'worldwide' reputation. However, in USA it has an incredible reputation. You should never doubt its prestige here in the US.

I think Harvard Princeton and Cornell are quite well known internationally (I've always known about them, as well as my friends). Dartmouth was a shock to me, as well as Upenn -- I always thought Upenn was good at football until someone corrected my by saying Penn state. Penn was really confusing.
