Columbia is one of my reach schools. I applied just for fun because it is one of my dream schools but I didn't expect to get an interview or get accepted. Well, I have an interview next Tuesday and am nervous because of my low stats. My essays were pretty stellar but I was curious to know who has been accepted and what admissions looks for in a student other than high GPA and test scores. My Grandpa attended but ended up not getting a degree because he enlisted in WWII. I wish everyone good luck in thier application process and I hope everyone gets into their desired schools.
