As per tradition, Columbia’s Undergraduate Admissions team ceremoniously marched out of their Hamilton office this afternoon, singing “Roar, Lion, Roar” and carrying Early Decision admissions packages, which they sent off on the FedEx truck waiting on college walk. Congratulations, Class of 2015! Don’t be too jealous, but this year the electronic admissions letter is a […]

Starting this fall, Columbia will join the ranks of most other schools (over 400 institutions) in the country and start exclusively using the Common App. Jessica “the Decider” Marinaccio writes that using the Common App will “make applying to Columbia more accessible to students from every background,” and reassures us that the App will still […]
