    Honestly, I was expecting the count to be a lot lower due to Sandy, but I guess the extension helped.

    I wish they gave us the individual count for CC and Fu.. Doesn't CC applicants normally far outweigh the Fu applicants?
  • raca1111raca1111 Registered User Posts: 204 Junior Member
    yea in general, the number of CC applicants is much greater than that of the Fu.
    I was hoping that it would be a decrease, but 1.3% isn't much of a difference.

    arghh I personally hoped it to be decreased slightly not like 10% but about 5~8% so that admission rate goes up. I wish Columbia release statistic for internationals separately. As a Columbia College ED applicant, I can't wait for the result release

    I'm surprised because I thought that Harvard and Princeton bringing back EA would make the number of applicants to Columbia decrease
  • HateSMUSHateSMUS Registered User Posts: 470 Member
    We already saw the drop last year by 5% due to SCEA programs from Harvard and Princeton. So they wouldn't be much of factor this year. Still, Columbia managed its ED applicant pool pretty well.
