Some questions Im considering are.. Will AA help me or go against me? How about legacy? I also had a cousin and an aunt attend NYU also, so idk, maybe itll help?? I can write really good essays, so maybe thatll make up for my wack ACT score, and also can i submit in my ACTs and 3 SAT IIs?? even if they look at my SAT scores??

    Having gone through the process myself and as an NYU Stern School of Business graduate, I would say that NYU definitely would be a reach school for you. But I know of an excellent way of dramatically increasing your chances of being accepted at this great university. Are you interested in learning how?
