    I think you have pretty decent chances of getting in. Stern looks only at CR+M so your SAT score at a 1450 is just about average. GPA is a bit below average, but your EC activities make up for it.

    Good luck.

    Your GPA isn't below average since your school clearly simply grades tough, since you're #2 in your class. You have a great shot, and will possibly have your financial needs met.

    @adreamer22 Btw do you think that I should apply for ED round? Because like I would need 40-45k $ for financial aid and they said regular round's much harsher...

    @damnitmegan Honestly I don't think it will matter for you. If they really want you, they'll give you enough money, regardless of early decision or regular action.
