What are the admission requirements for Columbia University?

Columbia uses a "a holistic admission process in which every single application is given a thorough review and there is positively no minimum grade point average, class rank or SAT/ACT score one must obtain in order to secure admission at Columbia." Thus, there is no minimum.

However, as listed in Peterson's, last year's stats were:

Admission: 17,151 applied; 1,662 admitted; 1,022 enrolled

Average high school GPA: 3.8

Test Scores:

SAT critical reading scores over 500 100%

SAT math scores over 500 100%

SAT critical reading scores over 600 92%

SAT math scores over 600 94%

SAT critical reading scores over 700 62%

SAT math scores over 700 58%

AnswerWhile most of the Ivies claim that they take a holistic approach to admissions, and there is no reason to completely doubt this, it is also true that a study done by Paul Attewell (The Winner Take All High School) of CUNY and published in 2001 indicates that a student's score on the Ivy Leagues Admissions Index (AI) is closely related to the probability of being offered admission.

The Ivy League's AI is a formula generated by class rank, SAT I scores, and SAT II scores. Attewell demonstrated that class rank plays an out-sized role in Ivy League admissions, with even a drop for #1 in the class to #5 having a very large impact on the probability of admission. So, the real answer to this question may be more like, "GPA is less important than class rank."

Answer

It varies. Perfect SAT scores have been rejected from Columbia. Low SATs are here and I know some of them. But GPA are all high. The SATs are not everything anymore. GPA is still a big factor. A 3.6 and lower will not get you in. A 3.8-3.9 is the average. A 4.0 is very common among accepted students. Good Luck

See Sources and Related Links to access Attewell's study.

The perfect SAT scores cannot be rejected like that. For getting into Columbia University you got to submit a "Statement Of Purpose" which decides the final selection or rejection. You have to be clear in your thoughts about the prospective reasons for pursuing a particular course in that university. They actually decide upon your goal and your inclination towards the chosen group of study. I recently happen to see an online tutor named 1to1 tutor which offered a good coverage on SAT applicants. You can get info on that too .

Do universities look at your grade 9 mark?

Yes, admissions staff will probably look at your grade 9 performance. But you know what? Assuming grade 9 wasn't your finest hour, they will be MUCH more interested in how you turn things around in grades 10, 11 and 12. That will speak VOLUMES about your ambition and character. If I worked in admissions, I wouldn't be phased by an unimpressive grade 9 perfomance.
