The student’s original Columbia application essay can be found at Essay Forum.
Here is what college-admission-essay-help.com‘s editors suggested.
Columbia is one of the few American schools to offer a single major in mathematics and economics, include business studies in liberal arts, and give students interested in finance and accounting chances to explore them fully. The courses that are part of this major will allow me to explore my interest in leadership, organizational behavior, and accounting. Columbia’s liberal arts classes will give me the broad background to apply learning from other disciplines to business problems. Besides these reasons, I want to help expand Columbia’s Cricket Club. I played varsity cricket in high school and would very much like to play in college.
In the editor’s view, the stuff about about Adam Smith, Maslow, and philosophy did not add anything to this student’s Columbia application essay.
