<p>One of my sisters is currently at NYU Stern for grad school. I don't think that would help any, but just in case.</p>

<p>I'd appreciate any thoughts. I know NYU is a big reach for me, but I figured I would at least try.</p>

<p>I don't think NYU is a big reach for you. It isn't unlikely that you'd get in.</p>

<p>Your SATs are okay, your GPA is kind of low. Overall, you are a competitive applicant.</p>

<p>Good luck.</p>

<p>-NYU class of '00</p>
