<p>*Note: Only two candidates from Malaysia sat for the AP exams this year. I am one of the two. Does this increase my admission chances? AP exams are not popular at all in Malaysia.</p>
<p>Two letters of recommendation from my English language teacher and school principal. Both are pretty strong. </p>
<p>I know my SAT scores are not in the NYU's range, but does this mean my chances are completely gone? Thanks!</p>
