The undergraduate backgrounds of 457 members of the incoming class could be verified by Poets&Quants using Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media sources.  Some 548 students enrolled in the class that started in August of 2011. Columbia expects nearly 200 more to enroll for its January startup. The estimate of students from a specific school are based on the percentage of the confirmed sample who have come from that university. Data compiled by Liza Rodler.
