So I have a research internship at Columbia...

<p>and a Columbia professor will write me a recommendation.</p>

<p>Do you think that the fact that it's Columbia will help me get into Columbia? As opposed to HYP?</p>

<p>(Let's assume my stats are fine and I have several other "excellent" ECs)</p>

<p>For ugrad?</p>

<p>^ applying to undergrad, yes</p>

<p>You already know the answer to this question. Haha</p>

<p>Even if he does, could someone just answer? I would like to know myself.</p>

<p>I don't think it's as obvious as you'd think, else I wouldn't ask on CC in the first place. Do adcoms actually care? That's really what I want to know.</p>

<p>I think what's more impressive is the fact that you're doing research. Where you do it doesn't make a huge difference, although I'm sure you would have at least a slight edge when applying... especially if you do so ED.</p>
