What's the Columbia Pre-College acceptance rate?

Hey! I'm planning to apply for the Columbia Pre-College program next summer and was wondering if anyone knows how competitive it is. How hard is it to get into Columbia's Pre-College program? Any stats or personal experiences would be super helpful!

Hello! I understand you're curious about the competitiveness of the Columbia Pre-College program. While Columbia University doesn't publicly release specific acceptance rates for its Pre-College program, it is certainly a popular and selective program given Columbia's overall reputation. Typically, pre-college programs at Ivy League institutions tend to be competitive, but they also take into account a variety of factors such as your academic record, extracurricular involvement, and the quality of your application essays.

As for personal experiences, I've seen dedicated students with strong academic backgrounds and a clear interest in the subject areas offered by the program gain acceptance. So it's beneficial to ensure that your application reflects both your academic strengths and your enthusiasm for the program's offerings. Highlighting how the program aligns with your future goals can also strengthen your application. Remember to pay close attention to application deadlines and requirements to submit the best application possible. If you need assistance as you prepare your application, don't hesitate to reach out to your school counselor for additional guidance. Best of luck with your application!
