Hi! I'm a rising senior and I'm about to apply to several colleges; NYU is one of them. I want to major in Engineering and I've heard about NYU Poly a couple weeks ago. However, the only issue is that my SAT doesn't meet the requirements. I've taken the SAT twice and it was around a high 1500 and low 1600. I've been practicing and I rose my score up to 200 points. However, my actual aim is to get a 2000+. However, just because of misfortune, what if I get a 1900? What if my CR does not meet the 25 percentile requirement which is a 620? I know for a fact that I can achieve a 770+ in math and at least a 700 in writing (I've been practicing and I can write a very strong essay).
I've been told that the SAT is one part of the college process. I take the full IB diploma with an unweighted GPA of a 3.63 and a weighted GPA of a 4.5. If I meet all of NYU's requirements except for my SAT score, what chance do I have to getting in?
Just an FYI: I'm just sticking with the SAT and the SAT subject tests. I've taken the ACT and I'm more comfortable with the timing on the SAT compared to the ACT.
