<p>I'm a non-American International Student, and I'm taking IB. I just finished Junior year, and took my SATs for the first time in May. I'm taking Biology, German, and English Lit for my SAT II in June, and re-taking the SAT I in October. These are my scores;</p>
<p>CR - 560
M - 610
W - 620
<p>I am aware my SAT score isn't that good. :/ I can most definitely higher the CR and W. This is what I'm predicting as my IB predicted grades.</p>
<p>English HL - 5/6
Drama HL - 7
Economics HL - 5/6
Math SL - 5
German SL - 6
Biology SL - 5</p>
<p>However, to make up for these, I've got a very, very long list of ECs that I am very dedicated to.</p>

But I'm really hoping to get into NYU...
Does anybody have any other suggestions for me in New York? And do you think I can get into NYU with my SAT scores if I have these ECs to compensate?</p>
