do I even have a chance, should I even bother to apply?
thanks for any input guys!!! :)</p>

<p>My guess is that NU is a far reach. Your ACT and GPA are both significantly below what looks like the averages for NU admissions.</p>

<p>This being said -- if you recognize that your chances are probably well below average, and you complete your other more realistic applications, the only cost to applying to NU is the application fee and a couple of hours of your time.</p>

<p>Agreed. High reach, but that doesn't mean it's impossible.</p>

<p>ok thank you all so much for your advice and input! :)</p>
