<p>I'm not sure about the others...but Northwestern and Carnegie Mellon are probably going to be realllyyyy tough reaches. (People with significantly better stats don't get in)</p>

<p>thanks for the response!</p>

<p>I understand those two, and they are indeed my reaches. but im hoping my portfolio and interview will help as much as possible. </p>

<p>do you respond better to emails, because i do have a few other questions.</p>

<p>Syracuse match (If your app is stellar)
UVA - High Reach
Carnegie Mellon - High Reach
Pratt - match
Parsons - safety/match
SAIC - safety
Northwestern - High Reach
Boston College - High Reach
NYU - Reach</p>

<p>NYU isn't considered a high reach? Isn't it still relatively difficult to get into? for CAS?</p>

<p>and for Syracuse, my scores and gpa seems to match its averages, but besides Syracuse having a notable public communications program, I don't know much about how difficult it is to get in.</p>

<p>Ask away~ (or pm if you prefer)</p>
