My Chances for Columbia

<p>I am going into my sophomore year and I need to know if I am good enough for Columbia! </p>

12th Grade: 6 APs, 1 Elective class or 7 APs</p>

<p>Currently these are my Standardized Testing Scores:
PSAT: 182
11th Grade PSAT Prediction: ~230
SAT: 1970
11th Grade SAT Prediction: ~2330

Checkers
Business Professionals of America (Become President)
NHS (Member)
Model United United (Become Vice-President)
Academic Decathlon</p>

<p>Any other information that you need to know just ask!</p>

<p>Its kinda hard to predict your chances. Continue to work hard, and it can be possible</p>

<p>your EC's arent amazing, did you ever try at the AIME or something like it? anything like that would help... also colleges dont see psat thats only for like NMS</p>

<p>Well yes I plan on doing all of that but I didn't know those would be
Counted as ECs... They are just tests</p>

<p>What is Columbia's acceptance rate?</p>

<p>In the past year, the acceptance rate was 6.9% out of over 20,000 applicants.</p>

<p>wow you have quite the resume... great job mate! i got into Columbia with a 1620 SAT and a 2.95 GPA. You will be fine</p>

<p>How could you project such improbable improvements in PSAT SAT and ACT? If those projections hold and you participate in meaningful ECs and a plethora of AP/IB classes, you have a great shot at whatever college you apply to.</p>

<p>your standardized test scores aren't good enough. our avg for the ACT is 33 and the SAT around 2250. let me know if you need help</p>

<p>You will have to get your standardized test scores up, but there is plenty of time for that. Remember that Columbia will put a fair amount of weight on your essays, sowrite some good ones. Best of luck.</p>

<p>It's a bit early to say what your chances are because so much information is just projected. But just keep putting great effort into school and your ec's and you should have a shot.</p>
