I'm determined to get accepted into a college in the New York city area.
I have my top four colleges. Ranked from highest to lowest.
Columbia University ( this would be my top, but it's an extremely high reach but anything is possible )
Pace University ( last resort ) not saying it's a bad college but definitely not my top choice.
I was looking on Wikipedia the admission statistics for Barnard. It's a smaller school and also has a smaller amount of applicants. Although from what I heard it is highly selective. I would assume this based on it's affiliation with Columbia. One thing that caught my eye was the Early Decision statistics. The overall percent admitted was 28.7% out of 4,000 applicants. But for the Early Decision applicants who applied a total of 392 applicants 47.7% was admitted. I'm not sure of the NYU admission statistics but I do know there are way more students applying which makes it more difficult for me to be accepted. So what do you think? Should I apply early decision to Barnard or NYU. I will be applying to the Arts and Science. SAT : 2100 GPA 3.6
