Hello, I realize that Columbia is a reach for everyone, but I was wondering what everyone thinks my chances are. My app isn't as great as some others but I hope I won't be a lost cause. I'll be applying ED for Engineering.

I realize my ECs and everything are very lacking... but I was wondering what you guys think. I have other schools I like lined up, but Columbia is definitely my favorite. If there's any other info that I should add, let me know. Thank you!
