    I would say its probably a reach. your GPA and SAT are both lower than the average for the incoming freshmen class. your ACT seems to be on point, so I would focus on that if that is your strong suit. Northeastern has become very competitive over the past couple of years. however, it is also pretty unpredictable I have seen them reject students with 1500+ on the SAT and admit students with stats close to yours. all I can say is that northeastern values demonstrated interest. they will flat out reject students with high stats if they think they are using northeastern as a safety school. so I would try to visit if you can and tour the school. you can also talk about why you like northeastern in your essay as well. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

    If you're taking the ACT, try to get it up to 34. On last year's EA thread, student after student was getting deferred with 33 on ACT, but 34s were making it in.

    For the Fall 2019 admitted students, the middle 50% student profile is GPA 4.1-4.5, ACT 33-35 and SAT 1470-1550. The admission rate was 18%.

    Those are very competitive statistics, higher than some of the schools ranked in the 20s. With your current GPA and scores, it is a reach to get into NU. Try to get higher SAT or ACT scores. Explain the trajectory of your GPA. The good news is NU's admission is holistic and the admissions officers will consider situations like yours. If you demonstrate strong interest and apply through ED, your chances will be better.
