What's this FU School of Engineering and Applied Science I've seen places? How is it different, and is it harder to get into?

FU or SEAS is Columbia's engineering undergrad program. While the curriculum can't compete with MIT or Caltech, it is still a very good program. This program appeals to those who want an engineering degree first and foremost, but would also like to diversify into the liberal arts. While you are not required to take the full core of the CC kids, you will take parts of it. Whether you take art hum or whatever is up to your discretion, giving you the ability to pick subjects completely unrelated to your major.
If you are looking for a mix between liberal arts and engineering, you might also consider Swarthmore which is even less rigid with its engineering requirements. I believe it is actually a major rather than a formal program you apply to.
SEAS is very difficult to get into, though I would say it certainly isn't more difficult to gain admittance than the college. [the program just attracts different, but equally talented kids]

Nabo are u currently in SEAS?

no, i will be attending the college next year. However, i have spent a fair amount of time on campus and made friends with a few people in SEAS. My general statements are a composite of their sentiments on their experience in SEAS compared to what they would have expected if they attended other comparable engineering programs.
