Hi guys!! So I am starting my application process and, just as most people on this site, am seriously curious about my chances of getting into my top-choice colleges. I am so excited to begin my college life, but want to make sure that I end up fulfilling it at a happy and healthy place. I want to experience the college that will make me feel like me, not a college where I feel underchallenged or inadequate. My top college choice is NYU and here are my stats:

High School Classes:
Freshman Year: Advanced Freshman Band, Honors English, Honors Geography, Honors Algebra 1, Biology, Spanish 1

Sophomore Year: Spanish 2, Band class, Honors English, Honors Algebra 2, Chemistry, Debate

Junior Year: AP English Lang, Precalc Honors, Honors Physics, Symphonic Two (Top Band Class), Creative Writing, Spanish 3, Honors US history

Senior Year: AP Psychology, AP Lit, ACP (Indiana University Level) Calculus, AP Government, Economics, Symphonic Two

My Extra-Curriculars: 2 years marching band, one year lacrosse, 3 years Organization of women, National Honor Society, 4 Years Student Government, 4 years youth group, 2 years future problem solvers, 3 years key club (community service), and this year-- my senior year-- i will be volunteering for a women's shelter (had to be 18), Worked 2 years at nursing home

Leadership: I am on the Board of the Organization of Women

SAT:
Critical Reading:620
Math:540
Writing:650
Keep in mind that I will be retaking this test in the fall.

GPA: 4.0/4.1

Class Rank: 26/855 This is in the top 3% of my class.

Taking a holistic approach to my college resume, do you think I can get into NYU? What type (tier) of schools do you think are tangible for me?

Thank you so much! I really appreciate your input!

*Just as a side note, I was also accepted into and attended the University of Chicago Summer Session, where I took college level courses and scored a B average.
