intended major?

<p>Are some majors easier to get into than others for Columbia? What about applied mathematics or anthropology ?</p>

<p>Thanks so much</p>

<p>The only majors easier to get into are if you apply to SEAS. You don't apply to a specific program--you apply either to the College or SEAS. The major you put down is completely nonbinding. Stop being a whore and have interests.</p>

<p>That's some fine advice. walkingcloud should be ashamed of such ignorance and retardation (as well as sure of an immediate rejection).</p>

<p>the majors are nonbinding, but the selection should not be random to sort of clarify what conorske is saying.</p>

<p>it should be what you like and what you're good at. saying you want to be a mechanical engineer when you haven't taken high school physics - perhaps a bit on the ridiculous side. spend time thinking about your academic talents, areas of interest, and select the majors that supposing you were to start school right now you would want to be in.</p>

<p>once you arrive, you can change your mind, you can take things you never heard of before, and enjoy something new.</p>

<p>and the easiest major is the one that you can do the best in.</p>

<p>It's frustrating to me to see rude responses to what may be legitimate questions.</p>

<p>Walkingcloud, I don't know where you're from, but in the US, most colleges do not have "quotas" for major selections in admissions. No college wants to admit 80% of its class as deadset philosophy majors, but most colleges understand that 17 year-olds often have intended majors and/or career paths that turn to dust after a few months of actual experience in college.</p>
