Chance Me on Columbia (Early Decision)

<p>I pretty much just copy and pasted my academic resume.
I'm a female African American/Native American who is passionate about becoming an architect.
Since I want to major in architecture I also have some supplementary materials I'll be adding to my application.</p>

<p>I third that. test scores are your weakest area. however, if you can get those up, you have a pretty good shot. keep you gpa strong, try to raise it if possible--gpa counts for more than SATs or ACTs by the way, so raise your scores if you can, but not if the time it takes studying for those costs you in grades. not gonna lie, your ethnicity is a HUGE plus, but that doesn't mean rely on it, that means, if it comes down to someone with similar stats who is white, or you, they will pick you. (although this would be for normal apps, obviously it also depends a lot on your portfolio, which we at CC can't judge for you).</p>
