    Well they should be impressed with that score.

    You will get the same letters from Harvard, Yale, and everyone else. They are marketing and it does not mean much to you as an applicant unless you want to apply to those schools.

    They don't mean anything, they send those to everyone.

    How's your GPA?

    Nice SAT score. How are your ECs.

    The letters mean nothing. They send them to everyone above 2100.

    It is more like anyone above 180/1800 sat/psat. Especially UChicago.

    It means nothing other than they paid the College Board for a list of students who got a score above some level. The letter may have said "NYU is impressed" but I guarantee you there is not a single person at NYU that has ever heard of you. Its just marketing.
