it seems like a good program for students at lesser tier schools to (with the exceptions of a few on the list) to also get a degree from a ivy/Columbia. However the requirements are just ridiculous...i think that will be the programs downfall...the reqs will prevent alot of people from applying..
1. Have been enrolled at an affiliated school for at least the past 2 years.
2. Receive an overall GPA and a pre-engineering GPA of 3.0 or higher.
3. Receive 3 favorable recommendations: from your Combined Plan liaison and both your science and math instructors at your home institution.
4. Successful completion of the course load stipulated by the articulation agreement between your home institution and Columbia, which includes:
* the science and math prerequisite courses listed in the Pre-Combined Plan Curriculum Guide and
* the major and distribution requirements prescribed by your home institution.
For guaranteed admission, the following courses are required, at minimum, for all majors:
* Calculus (4 terms); Ordinary Differential Equations (not required for all majors)
