Columbia gets a LOT of applications from very qualified applicants. The grades and standardized test scores end up being passed over very quickly. What really matters is if you can prove you are an interesting, motivated person with something to offer to the university community. I was the only person from my high school to get into Columbia even though two people with better grades and class rank than me also applied. I stood out because of my specific interests in Columbia and New York, and also because I did a lot more unique and interesting things outside of my academics.
SAT: 2100 Male
