COLLAGE AND CAREER
6 period English 1
Columbia University was founded in 1754 as King's College by royal charter of King George II of England. It is the oldest institution of higher learning in the state of New York and the fifth oldest in the United States. Columbia's current president is Lee C. Bollinger. He's also the longest serving Ivy League president.
I want to go to Columbia University because its ranked as one of the top schools in architecture. Not to mention its one of the eight Ivy League schools which are the best schools in the U.S. Getting into this school will be very hard but if I do all my hard work will be worth it.
The admission requirements consist of SAT and ACT scores. SAT Critical Reading: 690 / 780, Math: 700 / 790, and Writing: 690 / 780. The ACT scores are Composite: 31 / 34, English: 32 / 35, Math: 29 / 35, and Writing: 8 / 10.
Columbia University is one of the eight Ivy League schools in the country. This means that its one of eight most prestigious schools in the U.S. Its up there with Harvard, Yale and even with top schools around the world. Its also the second best school in the U.S for architecture.
I want to be an architect because when I was younger my uncle was in collage, and he was studying architecture. I used to see him drawing things by hand and with computer programs and it would entertain me. When I got older I asked him to teach me basic stuff, and I liked it so I decided pursue the same career.
In the future I want to design a sky scraper to add in the New York skyline. Not just that but also to be the youngest architect to design and build a sky scraper. Eventually I want to be the head architect at a firm, or even own my own architecture firm.
Architects make anywhere around 55 to 120 thousand dollars a year according to your experience. This would equal to 26 to 60 dollars an hour.
