Columbia's touted to be one of the better plasma physics programs out there. I didn't visit when I got accepted last year, though I did exchange emails with one of their plasma physicists (I was more turned off by living in NYC than I was with the program itself). I think if you're inclined to do experimental plasma physics then they'll be a good program, but I thought they had a pretty limited faculty as far as theory is concerned, and their most reputed theorist Allan (sp?) Boozer spends most of his time at Princeton anyway...it's actually quite funny, he's got an office right down the hall from my adviser in the theory wing of PPPL, and he's there all the time. It's as if he's Princeton faculty and not Columbia.
Anyway, I'll check back on the forum later and see what's been going on since I disappeared (which was primarily a result of three months of insanely overblown preparation for the princeton physics qualifiers, which I passed thankfully), but I have some actual hw to get done before the new admits visit tomorrow evening.
