I've posted before, but not about Columbia. Columbia has become my dream school. Location, location, location. I know that asking here is nearly meaningless, but I will anyway.

Hispanic (I do not intend to offend, but this does affect my admission chances)

Unweighted GPA: 3.5
Weighted GPA: 4.1

--SATI--
V: 700
M: 750
(taking 2nd time in Dec.-studying this time)

--SATII--
Writing: 660 (weak, especially for Columbia)
MathIIC: 760
Physics: 770
US Hist: 730
Lit: 720

--ECs--
Wrestling
::4 years Varsity::2 years captain::
Boy Scouts
::Eagle Scout::
Volunteer at Adelphia Communications

--Work--
Recently got a job doing 3D visualizations of a local company's products

--Essays--
One on wrestling, one generic (my thoughts on... stuff)


Finally, some other questions:

What does Columbia like to see in their book list and what i did with my summer areas? What if I didn't do any extremely academic activities over the summer? All I have is wrestling camp, short films w/ friends, and work on art.

Thanks. Try not to flame ;)
