I received the MDE scholarship ($27,000) and the MDE-DNP seamless scholarship ($40,000), but no outside scholarships. It is very expensive even with scholarships and you really have to weigh if your ultimate career goals will be benefitted by attending Columbia vs. a more inexpensive school. For me as a psych student, I really wanted the diverse clinicals/patient populations that come with working in NYC and global opportunities during my program, both of which I have gotten here. Also, I was not eligible for any federal financial aid because I used it all on my bachelors, so having a direct entry Masters degree made the most sense for me! But everyone's situation is different.
