Northeastern Early Decision I

GPA: 4.12 W
ACT: 33 (36 English, 35 reading, 32 Math, 30 science)
APs: APUSH-5, AP Environmental-4, Psych-5, Lit-4
currently taking Stat, Calc AB, micro and macroeconomics

Major: Marketing but said I'm interested in combined major w/ communications

- Work at tutoring center for four years (longest working employee besides my boss so I have leadership there)
- Volunteer every Sunday at Chinese school
- Presented research on global malnourishment/female rights to education at a program at Rutgers University
- Internship at NYC financial health company over the summer
-National Honors Society
-Girl Scouts
- Playing piano which I have gotten awards for
- Flute player in band

I think my recommendations are pretty good because I had great relationships with my teachers and one of them introduced me to the program I did research for.
I also had my employer write me a recommendation letter.

In addition, I would say my essay is a solid 8.5/10.

Northeastern has been my top school since sophomore year and I will probably cry for a week if I get rejected lol.

Thanks to those who respond! :)

    I think with ED you have a 50/50 shot at least.

    I applied to Northeastern EA and I have a 3.73 unweighted gpa and my sat is a 1130.
    I know my SAT is low but I have take. AP Environmental, APUSH, AP Euro,
    AP lit and AP Lang
    I am class president, president of best buddies, apart of NHS, DECA where I have placed first and won an award nationally, I have won awards in the state house, raised money for charity through events I created, I submitted an art portfolio and kept in touch with the representative in my area. I filled out all 10 extra curricular and sent a resume as well.
    I had a really strong essay
    I also wrote I prefer to do the NU in Abroad program. Does this help my chances?
    My reccomendation letter was written by my principal
    Do I have a chance? Considering they use a holistic review?

    I'd say you have a chance. SAT might set you back but your other stuff looks good especially because of your leadership roles. A lot of people get deferred from EA but I've seen people with relatively low standardized testing scores get admitted RD. Good luck!
