<p>Rank: We haven't officially got it from the office yet, but I know I'm in the top 10%</p>

<p>Applying to CAS</p>

<p>*Please respond and tell me what u think, If possible give a percentage chance. Thanx in advance for your advice.</p>

<p>Sorry I messed up a few things:</p>

<p>1st: Im taking five AP's next year: the four above and BC Calc.
2nd: I forget to include that I have three great rec., and they will only get better
3rd: I have been accepted to the Georgia Governors Honor program, so jeep that in mind also</p>

<p>come on guys</p>

<p>You have as good of a chance as the rest of us do. Just as long as you present yourself with confidence you should be fine. Besides, rejection isn't the end of the world. I was rejected ED to Columbia, but I am still alive and well. In my opinion, these applications are all about how you present yourself.</p>

<p>wow, governor's honors is a very prestigious award . . . i'd say GPA will hurt you, course rigor will help you, and SAT's, rank, and EC's are about average for NYU . . . probably about a 40-50% chance</p>

<p>Thanx maverick and cupofjoe, I really appreciate your help. I know that being rejected isn't the end of the world, and I didn't mean to come off like it was. Do you think applying ED would give me a better chance of getting in</p>


<p>anyone else got comments</p>
