<p>Ok (ish)

<p>If you only got one or so B's, how is your GPA 3.68-3.71?</p>

<p>But your course load is pretty strong; I'm relying on that for me too.</p>

<p>Definitely a target imo, your SAT isnt weak at all with a 2200, and in fact you should note that NU doesn't look at Writing on the SAT so with a 1500 on CR & Math, NU should be a complete Target school for you. Best of luck :D</p>

I "exaggerated a little bit" I got quite a few A-'s and maybe 2 or 3 B's</p>

Thanks! WOW I never knew that!</p>

<p>if you applied early i'm 85% you will get in. admission rate for early is around 38% usually, and your sat is def. above average and wow lots of APs and awards can only help you get in.</p>

<p>Your grades are a bit low, but everything else looks fine. You have a shot. No one can say more.</p>

<p>It would be important to ask which school you applied to, as that will certainly put a different light on your chances.</p>

<p>EDIT: I only say that because I was wowed by your stats and your grades are largely much better than mine were, but the comment above suggests you as below par, which I would only find true if you applied to a particularly tough major.</p>

<p>To avoid being misinterpreted, I don't think OP's grades are outside the range that NU accepts. Just 'a bit' lower than average. I still think the application will be competitive.</p>
