    NU is huge on grades and test scores. I would try and get the ACT up to at least 33, preferably 34, and your weighted GPA should be over 4.0. There are always people admitted without these grades/scores, but it seems to be the zone that really helps your chances. Good luck!

    You responded to my chanceme so I am obligated to respond to yours haha. You are right, your EC's are better than mine for sure so that's a +! However, I feel as though your act is going to hurt you alot. I know NEU cares about stats alot and I don't think you're in the middle 50%. You're gpa, like mine, is also on the lower side. I think with Rd your chances are eh, 10%? Maybe more, maybe less? But you never know, you may fill a niche that they want! Goodluck!

    Thanks for the replies! My weighted GPA including college classes should be a lot higher, (4.1 ish) but unfortunately I can't take the ACT again since there isn't any time. Do you guys have any recommendations for what I should do to raise my chances?

    The fact that you are taking college courses should help with your stats. Anyways, one thing a lot of people are overlooking, are how many students from their school/district are applying to NEU. How does your local competition look? If you were on the admissions team, and you saw half the grade from one school applying (which is my case sadly), you would then be able to compare apples to apples.

    Regardless, I think and hope you get in :)

    Thank you that was helpful! I go to a pretty competitive high school and honestly most people from my school (30-40 people I would guess) probably have better stats than me, but I do consider myself to have pretty good EC's and projects! I wish you the best of luck as well :)

    Is there anyone willing to chance me?
    SAT: superscore 1330 (not a good test taker)
    GPA: 4.0 unweighted, not sure weighted because everyone does it differently
    AP Classes I took: AP bio, AP Lang, AP US History, AP Stats, AP Chem, AP Literature, didn’t end any with below a 90% unweighted
    Intended major: pharmacy
    Extracurriculars:
    Two paid jobs, national honor society with lots of community service, more than 3 clubs one with a leadership position, played a travel sport for three years, leader of positivity project for the school

    Let me know! I’m applying early action. I feel as if I’ll get deferred, but hoping for the best! Thanks again :)

    oh and also, I took all honors and ap classes besides one English class my sophomore year, my dad also never graduated from college if that means anything and I’m from upstate New York, a public school with about 230 per grade, we don’t rank so I don’t know where I would fall.
