<p>Also, should I apply ED II or RD?</p>

<p>Assuming all your stats are true, your 3.9/3.8 UW GPA (out of 4.0) is excellent. SAT scores are good for CAS. You make a strong applicant. </p>

<p>Generally applying ED II will help your chances. </p>

<p>Were you looking to apply anywhere else, or are you set on NYU? If you're set on NYU, then by all means, apply ED II.</p>

<p>Thank you! I'm seton NYU after being rejected from my #1, but scared of rejection.</p>

<p>What was your number one? Your stats are really impressive. Associates before HS grad is really awesome. You'll make a really nice CAS candidate for sure.</p>

<p>Yale... Silly, but still. I'm glad I tried because I learned a lot. Thank you! I'm already nervous and I haven't even submitted my app.</p>

<p>If you're set on NYU, I would say apply ED II.</p>
