GS in the News
Written by Bwog Staff
A Sunday NYT article on Ivy League continuing education puts Columbia’s School of General Studies in perspective. Some schools have highly selective programs– Brown lets in 10% of applicants– while some have much looser requirements– say, Harvard’s “Write an essay, you’re in.”
The big difference in admit rates seems to be whether adult students are put in with younger ones. If they are, lower acceptance rates, and if they get classes of their own, higher ones.
We’ll leave it up to you to interpret the cosmic implications of GS’ 39 to 44% admit rate.
Thanks, commenter, for pointing out a slideshow in the same section on Columbia (and Portland, OR?) student fashion. Too bad not many of us actually dress like that, though.
