    They might not view you as skipping 10th grade positively. They might question the nature of that program. Everything looks fine though. RD is much harder than ED.

    I thought that if you send SAT II scores your SAT I scores will be lumped in there and sent as well.

    i disagree with Pakistan. i don't think they will view you skipping a grade as a negative only because the rest of your application is strong. 11 APs, good class rank, solid ECs, all while skipping a grade. it isn't like you skipped junior year.

    the only thing i'll ask is that being a year younger. . .are you ready to live in NYC and go to NYU? have you visited the campus yet? i'm not doubting your maturity. the only reason i bring it up is because some freshmen find NYC overwhelming, and you'll be a year younger than everyone else. if you haven't visited NYU, i highly recommend you do.
