My dad went to graduate school there. I was really not considering Columbia until yesterday, when he told me to apply, just to see. I was originally only going to apply to one ivy league-brown, and then all liberal arts schools. i live in new york city. My grade average is an A/A-, at a crazy competitive private high school. i have dual citizenship france/usa. my sats are good, not incredible. do you guys know if legacy helps very much, or not at all, at columbia?
