I think 2) definitely happens. I'm sure many of the other things are true, as well, but if I was accepted to Harvard I would use that to my advantage everywhere else.

I don't think columbia gives out hamiltons or the half hamiltons ( I forget the name) based on whether or not you got admitted to Harvard. From what I can tell, these are usually given out with your initial offer of acceptance, when columbia would not know whether or not you have been accepted to Harvard.

This seems to suggest softs coming into play, then. So they *do* matter in some specific number ranges.
