Welcome to Columbia and Barnard, Class of 2024!

Hopefully, you’re feeling relieved! Please know that Bwog welcomes you with open arms. As long as you have chaotic good energy, we support you.

Columbia College and Columbia Engineering released its Regular Decision results tonight at 7:00 pm EST. The two schools accepted 2,465 out of the 40,084 students who applied this year, marking a significant drop from the record number of applicants for the class of 2023. Nevertheless, the barrier to entry remains high with this year’s acceptance rate at 6.1% – congratulations, kids, you’ve really made it!

As spring events such as admitted student programming and campus tours have been canceled, the admissions office intends to launch extensive new virtual programming to familiarize students with Columbia. This includes social media chats, video webinars, master classes, and a new virtual initiative that will match admitted students with a current student buddy.

Regular Decision results for Barnard’s incoming first-year class were released on Tuesday, March 24th around 5:45 pm EST. This year, the college admitted 1,022 of the 9,411 eager seniors who applied, dreaming of spending their days in Milstein. 18% of the newly admitted students identify as first-generation college students and 62% identify as women of color. Additionally, the new students call 32 countries and 51 states and territories home.
