I am 19 but came from another country. I spent a period of 1 year out of school learning English. Since my English was poor, I decided to attend a Community College instead of waiting and trying to pass exams for a harder school. I felt a Community College would give me an idea about the US academic system - which I had any. I have a strong background back in my country though.
Anyway, most people I know say, since my major is Business, I will be only able to apply to the School of General Studies - and still must change my major into Liberal Arts.
Today I talked to a Columbia adviser who told me I must be 29 years old in order to get into the GS program.
This person told me I should apply as a regular student; I should apply to Columbia College. Now I am extremely confused!
