This pretty I'm gonna be talking about the Columbia University application as a first year. I'm gonna be talking about some tips and tricks. What to remember when you're applying what, Adam the do's and don'ts. I hope this really helps you in your application process, whether it is for Columbia or other schools. Deadlines are really important when it comes to applying to colleges, especially colleges that you really, really want to get into. Make sure all of your materials were submitted online and make sure you're talking Teo, your teachers, your counselors about submitting documents themselves and letting them know the deadlines for things. Another tip is to make sure you know the difference between early decision deadlines and regular decision deadlines. Early decision deadlines, of course, come earlier in the year. So the application today is November first, and of course, I would suggest to only do early decision if you're one hundred percent sure that you really do want to attend that institution. If money is not a huge factor and that is because, of course, if you do regular decision will be able to compare financial aid packages and choose that way. So for early decision, that deadline is November first. For your indecision, the deadline is January first, so that gives you a little bit more time when it comes to doing the application. Another tip is to really talk to your teachers and counselors about things so they know what's going on. They know what they have to provide for you to help your application process. So Columbia does require teacher recommendations and a counselor recommendation. So they do have the time to write a really great recommendation for you as well as your cancer. Counselors usually have to do recommendations for all of their students, so it would be better to talk to them earlier, earlier on in the air. So when it comes to requirements and what you needed to apply to Columbia, there are a few things that you needed to make sure you have completed before you apply. So you can either applies for the coalition application or the common application. You see some school district's used the coalition application, there's going to be a personal essay that you have to complete personalized questions to Callum University. There is some questions like we'LL book City Real books to enjoy what place You enjoy as well as a wide Colombian question, and I'LL give you some tips on how to answer that question later on in the video. So another tip is to make sure that all other standardized testing is either submitted through college board or self reported schools there. Some schools who don't ask for some advice testing scores, but Columbia does ask her scores. So I would just make sure that you submit those scores before the deadline as well. So we're not just going to talk about the questions. What you Khun Dio, too, really stand out from other applications? The do's and the don'ts when it comes to answering these questions and other tips and tricks in terms of the actual application. So the first tip I'd give is honestly, just being yourself with the school wants to know that you're human, they want to know that outside of school, you do other things that you relax, that you enjoy certain hobbies. They want to know that you're not only school because when they go to a college campus, of course, it's all about academics. They want to know how you are as a person as a whole. So when it comes to answering your questions, don't just focus on us. Feel free to not over exaggerate a sob story, but to truly encompass what you've gone through obstacles you have encountered and overcome to get to where you are today. Another time when it comes to answering the White Columbia question, it is to really just research the institution. Know what classes you want to take Noah professors who want to take classes with No what clubs you want to join? No. And envision yourself at this school. They want to know that you envision yourself at the school and that you can contribute something to the campus as well. A ce them contributing something to your academic life. Yeah, I hope you applied to Columbia, and I hope you learned a bit about the tips and tricks when it comes to applying to the school. I hope you have great success with my flying and congratulations in advance.
