Chances at Columbia Engineering

I'm currently in the process of applying to colleges and want to see if this is a realistic choice for me (specifically the biomedical engineering major).

GPA- 3.7 UW, 4.3 W

SAT cumulative: 1590
Math: 790
Reading: 800

Biology M: 800
Chemistry: 790


Engineering and technology club founder + president: Created the club at my school. I have worked on several projects, but the most memorable has to be the 3D prosthetic limb I created. The limb works by sensing muscle tension in one's arm and contracting and retracting based in the sensor's input. My work was published in the school paper and I have published research on my advancements as well.

I spearheaded a fundraiser to help raise money for a condition I was diagnosed with 2 years ago: Eosinophilic Esophagitis. We raised over $50,000 which has all gone to funding research.

I speak to other teenagers my age publicly to help them cope with the disease. I hope that sharing my story with them shows that they aren't struggling alone.

Science Olympiad: I have competed in several tournaments ranging from Biology (Anatomy) to physics, and have won multiple awards.

I am a peer tutor at my school. I'll stay after classes to assist underclassmen with coursework they are struggling to understand.

I know how to read and code on Python, Java, Swift, and C++.

I've shadowed various physicians at St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, NY.

I volunteered at St. Francis Hospital for 100+ hours.

That's it! Thanks for taking the time to read and answer my query!
