Try to practice answering the questions first and be yourself. There really is no trick here. There is no interview so the video interview replaces that and it's a way for Admissions to get to know you better.

hey guys. New to this thread. I applied to Columbia coming from University of Miami and I'm just wondering how competitive it is? I've read that it has an acceptance rate of around 30%. Anyone know if this is true? My GPA is around a 3.4 so I'm not sure if that's good enough.

Columbia does try to take a holistic look at your application. One of the great things about the program is they want the cohort to have a variety of experiences and backgrounds. If your GPA is low, then try to emphasize the other things on your resume, such as a volunteer experience etc.

Do you happen to know about how many Columbia graduates does NYP hire each year since it's part of the Columbia Medical center? thx

Hi 🙂 I don't want to confuse you so hopefully this makes sense. The school and NYP are separate entities. Columbia Nursing graduates do not automatically get hired or get preference to be hired at NYP. You are treated the same as any regular applicant.

Thank you for answering. In JHU, there's a new grad program for its own students something like a few hospitals (incl. JHH) can basically hire you even before you graduate and have final practicum if you meet GPA criteria and have good rec. letters. So i wonder if Columbia has something like that.

Nope! Again, NYP doesn't give CU nursing students any preference.
