I took a look at Columbia's application for 04-05 and it's identical to the one from last year. Every single question is the same.

The questions have been the same for quite a while in fact. Answer them truthfully and don't overstuff your answers. You want to provide them with a rounded image of yourself. If you read 38 books this year, pick your favorite one or two from each genre.
For the essay, this is the most personal part of the application so asking others what they wrote about probably won't help too much. It should come from personal experiences.
For ideas on style and prose and GENERAL topic areas see an essay book like "100 Successful College Application Essays, by Christopher Georges" or Harry Bauld's "On Writing the College Application Essay"
If you're curious, I wrote mine, entitled "Music Maker" on my perception of how I Compose music by comparing the process to a chess-like battle.

That's really cool. Thanks for your help! Now, I have two really important questions for everyone.
1) Are Canadian citizens studying in Canada (i.e. went to high school in Canada) considered international students at Columbia University? Should they use the international student application?
2) Are U.S. citizens studying in Canada (i.e. went to high school in Canada) considered international students at Columbia University? Should they use the international student application?
This is really important! I don't want to fill out extra applications for nothing...lol. Can anyone help me here?

I believe US citizens are not, Canadian citizens are. You should confirm this with Columbia though. Call the admissions department 212-854-2522 to be sure.

I see we have a group of Fat Albert impersonators. That shall certainly add to Columbia's prestige.
