Is it worth going ED at Columbia??
I absolutely love Columbia, I knew it from the moment I stepped on the campus for my tour. I'm now trying to decide whether or not I should apply ED. I know the admit rate is higher ED, but is the applicant pool more competitive? Does Columbia accept all its athletes ED, therefore skewing its ED rate? My other option would be to do a whole bunch of EAs that I could probably get into, i.e. Georgetown (legacy), UVA, UNC, UMich, BC. Obviously not a shoo in at these schools, but I would say I have a very good chance. If I went this route, I would have some schools in my back pocket so I wouldn't have to completely rely on RD, which in my opinion is risky. My stats are pretty good: 2330 SAT (800 CR, 750 math, 770 writing), and 4.3 gpa (out of 5), top 10% of my class. My main EC is music, so I have a bunch of relating stuff I won't bore you, but I think overall I'm a pretty good applicant for any school. I just don't know which route would be better. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!!3 replies
