I'm a current high school senior and I'm applying to Columbia ED.
I finished my application and supplement already and after looking through it, I'm afraid that I talked too much about my sexuality.
My college essay is about my relationship with my mother before and after my rough coming out experience. My extracurricular essay is about GSA. And my "Why Columbia?" essay is about the rich gay culture of the city and how Columbia created the first gay student group. My list of pleasure readings, publications and other entertainments all follow the same theme as well.
These were the things that I naturally gravitated towards and thought that I could pump the most passion into since it is the topic closest to my heart. I'm just afraid that I won't come across as a well-rounded person.
Any advice? Thanks in advance!
Oh, and good luck to all applying to Columbia ED! I'm sure I'll be freaking out alongside all of you as results are coming out
