Personal Story

"Getting into Columbia was pretty cool. I was pretty excited and anxious to getting in, but I was also super hyped for it. When I got it, I was super excited because it's a pretty good school and I was going to meet some amazing people and learn some amazing things there."

Useful Advice

"To be honest, reddit was the best source of info for me to this date. Reading posts about what other people did, their advice and how they approached everything was super helpful in helping me figure out what to do and how to do it.
