A really basic question about columbia's application...

Postby tlslsnlsp » Sun Oct 31, 2010 10:30 pm

This is mildly embarassing, but I don't know who else to ask. I'm trying to submit my application online, but what am I supposed to do about the signature at the end of the main form? attach a scan of my signature?

Also, for the question asking to "list and describe the major extracurricular, community, and professional activities that have been most important to you", it has a grand total of three lines to fill. am I expected to keep my answer to those three lines?!

thank you so much in advance.

Once you submit it there's a little checky box thing that is basically like, "By clicking this, you certify that what you said in your app is true blahblahblah." So it functions like a signature, so don't worry about that :)

I tried to cram in as much as I could in the three lines, and then obviously attach a resume and hope they actually look at it. Just put your most awesome things there.

thanks a lot for the reply. By cramming in as much, do you mean you picked out the 1 activity that meant the most and crammed in some description about it, or just crammed in a list of the activities?

I did a combination of both, maybe took like one line from my resume and then moved on to the next activity...I just condensed it as much as possible.
