Anonymous email sent in last night which recounts a critical moment in the Columbian life-cycle: At approximately 5pm EST, a shot was fired. “Housing?!” posted one eager student in the Columbia – Class of 2016 Facebook grouper, sending over 1,000 students into a rush to get to LionMail first. No doubt, this would create traffic; […]
History repeats itself, 2016. Prefrosh Facebook one another. Sometimes, they plan parties. This year, they’ve been inspired by Mean Girls, the 2004 teen comedy starring cute Lindsay Lohan. Those are pretty good quotes, to be fair, and these prefrosh clearly love the idea of Columbia. If only we could buy some of their enthusiasm on the street and […]

Last semester, after Early Decision results went out, we checked in on the Class of 2016’s Facebook page. We expected to be, uh, entertained; we were not disappointed. So last week, when Regular Decision stats were announced, we thought maybe that the 2016 Facebook’s page had had time to ferment. Again, we expected something to chuckle at. Indeed, […]
Today, compounding the stress of nervous high school seniors across the hemispheres, our Office of Undergraduate Admissions released preliminary numbers for the regular decision pool. The stats showed an overall drop in applications from last year, which they attributed both to a normalizing effect from Columbia’s switch to the Common App in 2010, and also to […]
The early entrants to Columbia’s CC and SEAS class of 2016 have been announced. As some of you may remember from way back when (high school), getting into college is kind of a big deal.
