College Confidential’s “Dean,” Sally Rubenstone, put together 25 of her best tips. Get your free copy of the "25 Tips from the Dean" eBook and get helpful advice on how to choose a college, get in, and pay for it:
I'm a junior in high school now. What are my chances of getting into NYU Stern Early Decision with these stats?
GPA: 3.37 weighted (school doesn't do unweighted GPA)
SAT: 560 CR, 650 M, 720 W (1930 combined, plan on retaking it though)
ACT: 27 (hope to retake that also)
Class Rank: N/A (no class rank in school)
So far taken only 1 AP, but senior year taking 2 AP's.
-various honors classes throughout high school
-a few hours of international community service
-involved in various clubs (Junior Statesmen of America, Forensics, etc...)
-I should have good teacher/guidance counselor recommendations and I should write a good essay.
-I don't need financial aid (if that matters)
Any advice/response would be nice. Thanks.
