Why Do You Want to Apply to Columbia University?

Columbia Universcolumbiaity's Early Decision deadline is November 1 giving students only ten more days to polish off a maximum of eight supplemental essays in addition to the Common App main essay! Perhaps one of the most important essay questions Columbia and many other schools ask is why you want to attend. On Columbia's application, the exact wording is, "Please tell us what you find most appealing about Columbia and why."

This is your chance to demonstrate your interest! Definitely spend time thinking about how you can best convey your goals and dreams and how Columbia is the perfect place for those to blossom. Unfortunately, these types of essay questions generally lead to students regurgitating the college's brochure, which is not the way to go.
