    In at CAS:

    SAT: 1600 (old system)
    SAT IIs: 790/750/690
    GPA: 3.7 Unweighted, top private HS
    Rank: School doesn't rank
    Other stats: Varsity in 2 sports, but not a recruit
    Good reccs and essays (or at least I thought)

    *I totally think that CAS and Stern are very numbers focused, while Tisch you'll need to be good at the artsy stuff too.

    Interesting observation Mikestrman, especially considering the fact that we've never even met. From reading several of your posts, I can see you're a quick one to judge people as "stuck up" with your dime store over the internet analysis. I'll just take a guess and say you're very closed minded and rash when it comes to making judgements about people.

    Good luck to you as well!
