Northeastern University early action?

edited August 2009 in Northeastern University
I really need some honest opinions on if I can get into Northeastern University because it is my #1 choice.

Academics:

I have a 3 year culmulative GPA of 2.96, but in junior year alone, I got a 3.4 or 3.5 GPA. Although, I'm not in any AP or honors classes

I got a 27 composite on the ACT

Extracurricular Activities:

By the end of senior year, I will have done 4 years of lacrosse, 4 years of wrestling and 3 years of football.

I have done the Midnight Run which is a community service organization and will have done it for 4 years at end of this school year.

I was a golf caddy at a country club in the summer before the school year started which I will say in my application

    What school are you applying to ?

    I really hope to see in another 6 weeks or so that you will be here posting some exciting news about being accepted to Northeastern.
    My daughter ( who was in your shoes last yr ) has a roommate that is a business major there. She thinks it is a little more lenient acceptance than her major ( Bouve Health Science )
    Best of luck to you

    how long does it take for NEU to give a decision for early action? i sent my stuff in 2weeks ago and they have recieved all of my information 3days ago
  • btw3006btw3006 Posts: 68Registered User Junior Member
    you will get the decision for early action in mid to late december. Can someone please give me an opinion on whether it's a reach, target or likely for me
  • lje62lje62 Posts: 3,421Registered User Senior Member
    I can't recall from last yr what the avg stats were for EA acceptance, but you could probably do a search here for the posts of accepted students to make a comparison. Back then, I was looking for stats for my daughter's major.
  • bloomsm301bloomsm301 Posts: 109Registered User Junior Member
    im not going to lie, your scores are pretty low for NEU...with it being a highly ranked school and all there lowest gpa was a 3.0 for accepted students, there average is between a 3.4-4.0....make sure ur essay is AWSOME and that it is directed towards you fitting into northeastern...did you apply early action?
  • btw3006btw3006 Posts: 68Registered User Junior Member
    yes, i applied early action to northeastern university
  • boston_man_2009boston_man_2009 Posts: 315Registered User Member
    there lowest gpa isnt a 3.0. I knew someone with a 2.8 thought got in!
  • bloomsm301bloomsm301 Posts: 109Registered User Junior Member
    i'm sorry let me rephrase it....90% of their students aren't below a 3.0....but hey anythings possible/....especially with this economy crunch...good luck!

    i would say a definate reach. sorry. On the other hand ur improvement in ur junior year could really be helpful. very. so make sure you take legit classes ur senior year.
  • bloomsm301bloomsm301 Posts: 109Registered User Junior Member
    and make sure u say somewhere on ur application (either in the essay or the place where u can provide any more additional information) that you have made a huge jump between soph and junior year and tell them if there was anything that was going on fresh and soph year that could have affected your grades
  • btw3006btw3006 Posts: 68Registered User Junior Member
    i think that my counselor will talk about how i improved
  • btw3006btw3006 Posts: 68Registered User Junior Member
    hey everybody, I got into Northeastern University
  • jnd3344jnd3344 Posts: 524Registered User Member
    when do you get an answer if you have been accepted in early action? does applying early action increases your chances if you have a 3.3 gpa and a 1550/2400 SAT being an international student from colombia with great extracurriculars
