  Columbia University
Columbia University has the third lowest undergraduate acceptance rate in the United States, placing just after Harvard and Princeton (the ranking is for doctoral universities, as categorized by the Carnegie Foundation and U.S. News & World Report).
Columbia's main campus occupies six blocks, 32 acres (132,000 m²), in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, and its largest satellite campus, Health Sciences, is situated some fifty blocks uptown in the island's Washington Heights.
Thanks to former university president Seth Low's late-19th century vision of a university campus where all disciplines could be taught and free discourse enjoyed by all, most of Columbia's graduate and undergraduate studies are conducted in Morningside Heights--a remarkable achievement, given the difficulty of finding contiguous real estate in Manhattan, even during the 19th century.
