Columbia students - what were your HS stats?

<p>I am applying at Columbia for fall 2006 and I feel unsure about my chances of getting in. Instead of posting my grades, SAT scores, etc., I think that it will be more useful if some students show how they got in. Any examples from Columbia students (former or present) will be extremely helpful. Any information from students who attend similar schools will be helpful as well.</p>

<p>Debate me if I am wrong, but I am highly doubtful that students who attend Columbia are looking at this site, if only because most people move past this point in their lives.</p>

<p>Ya, I won't argue with that. Though, there seem to be a fair amount of posts from people who have attended Ivy League schools, or at least from people who know someone who has. I'll be happy with one or two examples.</p>

<p>Use the search feature of CC and look for RD stats from threads in early April. Look at HYP as they will be similar. </p>

<p>Keep in mind that Columbia and other elite schools will reject applicants with near perfect and even perfect SAT scores.</p>

<p>One or two examples of scores of people who were admitted is pretty useless. For every kid admitted with a 4.2/1480 or whatever, there were probably 5 rejected with those same numbers.</p>

<p>That's true - I didn't really think about it like that. I guess it's kind of a lost cause.</p>
