Columbia's Application

<p>Is there anything that Columbia is looking for in an applicant that another school would not look at to as high a degree. Is there anything in particular that would distinguish the applicants Columbia accepts as opposed to other schools of the same caliber.</p>

<p>Im guessing undergraduate, they might look at class rank higher but im not sure</p>

<p>i think that columbia looks for students who can handle themselves in a city or not, and whether they can handle some independence. it is different to go to school in nyc compared to ithaca. you need a backbone for sure.</p>
