Ivy League Additional Info?
I've been on a grand East Coast College Touring Extravaganza for the past few days and fell absolutely in love with Columbia when I visited. I've been thinking through my application process since I do plan to apply early. My question is this: I wrote a complete novel a few months back. I was planning on mentioning it in my extracurriculars since I am hoping to be a part of their English department anyway. But would it be beneficial for me to submit a link to the full manuscript of said novel in the additional info section in my common app? This question is mostly for Columbia, but honestly applies to all the Ivy Leagues I'm sending in applications for.4 replies
