yfung91 3 / 8 Dec 28, 2008 #1Please tell us what you find most appealing about Columbia and why:Face it. The job market is increasingly competitive due to the economic crisis. Companies hire only the best and they know that Columbia graduates are the best. Why? Because to be a Columbia graduate' means much more than just the name. It means passing the College's rigorous courses, many of which are unrivaled anywhere. It means having a mind open to diversity and fantastic social skills. It means having the determination to compete and the ability to successfully overcome any challenges presented. That is what Columbia means and why a Columbia graduate is the best: I want to among the best.Here is my problem...I wanted to answer the question without directly saying: "Columbia appeals to me because..." so I tried to answer it using a different approach. but i think, my approach seems more off topic than actually answering it.what I'm trying to say is that Columbia appeals to me because of : "College's rigorous courses, many of which are unrivaled anywhere," and that it puts you in a position where you face challenges that take determination to overcome, and prepares you well for the future.If it doesn't make sense, please tell me (because it doesn't work if only I understand what I'm trying to say). I think I may rewrite it.
