    1. Yes, you are applying way to high given your GPA. Your GRE has to be really good to compensate your low undergrad GPA.
    2. Scholarships for master's are very unlikely in UK and the same goes for a master's in Columbia. But you can have funding from external sources like the Commonwealth scholarships for UK.
