Hey, guys. I'm just getting a little paranoid about college admission. Could you guys just write down some comments?
First of all, I'm a Korean who came to the US 3 years ago. Before that, I've lived in South America for 13 years. So, I speak three languages fluently: Korean, Spanish, English.
Right now, I attend one of the most prestigious private school in the USA. (this year about 50% of the graduates got into IVY-level colleges) This year, I want to apply to Harvard, Yale, and other IVYs, but could you guys write down comments based on Columbia admission? Desired major is either Business(economics) or Biology.
9th grade in Public High in NY
AVG 98.5 (unweighted)
10th grade in private

11th grade in private
AP Physics (3) Not really a physics person. I'm not majoring in physics.
AP US history (4)
AP Spanish Lang (5)

AVG in private 3.6(pretty good in this school. Upper 10%) without freshman grade
12th grade courses in private

This is pretty much everything. Just consider RECs and essays would be pretty good. My teachers and advisers really dedicate a lot in recs since they have few students to worry about. Please be candid, I wouldn't seriously mind. Thanks a lot. Good luck to everyone.

Why do you ask questions that don't need answers?

Quit posting the same damn thread in every Ivy forum.

You don't want answers to questions, you want us to feed your ego.

both of you should stop being such jackasses. he can ask for chances just as much as anyone else. as for the OP, you've got good academic credentials and a lot of clubs, but i don't see any depth. if you emphasize a passion on your application, you'll stand a solid chance. however, regular decision at columbia is pretty tough, so no one can be too confident.
