Columbia University: Writing Test 2012


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I've applied to Columbia University Graduate Journalism Program twice before so I had no intention of applying again, but they called me the day before the application was due and asked me to update my application. As you all know, it's not everyday you get a call from Columbia and not every applicant gets a chance to apply again so I took a leap of faith and here I am. The hardest part by far was writing the essays with a twenty four hour deadline.

So here I am waiting it out again with one more hurdle to face: the writing test. Since I work in a news gathering position, I am not worried about the news content part. Plus, it's my favorite time of year where all the "Year in Review" articles are coming out so I'm using that to refresh my memory (and spelling) on what I've covered. What I'm worried about is the other parts of the test such as grammar (since I don't write web copy everyday), history and geography. Do you guys have any tips on how to brush up on this?

Thanks in advance! :)
