Columbia metro feels quite a bit bigger than Madison's if that is something that matters to you IMO, just in raw size. The density is less, but not as much less as the statistics show. Neither city has much of a very high density area though.

Downtown: Madison by a bit, but Columbia has improved somewhat
Walkability: Neither is super, but Madison
Architecture: Cola
Transportation: Public, Madison. For car, I'd argue Columbia with four(ish) interstates (I think technically 5, but one basically doesn't count)
Climate: Depends what you dislike more: hot summers or cold snowy winters
Scenery: Columbia (Broad River is really nice, plus Congaree National Park and a few state parks-Sesquicentennial in particular)
Campus: Columbia
Recreational Activities: Madison, by a whisker
Bars and Restaurants: Columbia in quantity, Madison in quality
History: Columbia
Suburbs: Madison, although Columbia has some nice suburbs too
Where would I rather live? Madison, I think
