Chances at NYU, ED?

<p>I am going to be a senior and my HS GPA is about 3.5-3.7 (not sure because old school only had IB grades there weren't translated into GPA).</p>

<p>I attended a Swiss international school for my freshman and sophomore years and had strong grades in pre-IB and all advanced courses where I could (Adv Math, Adv English, Adv German). The only bad grades were in Math.</p>

<p>For junior year (and senior year) I attended an American school in Argentina doing the full IB diploma with a 3.55-3.60 GPA, unweighted. I have only As and Bs.</p>

<p>SAT: 2060 (CR: 710/M: 640/W:710)
I am taking them again in October.</p>

<p>ECs:
-Soccer for 4 years, varsity for 2, captain for 1
-Started film club
-Debate club
-Student council treasurer
-Prom committee
-Tutoring/community service (150+ hours)</p>

<p>I also did an 80 hour internship in the PR offices of Stella McCartney as a junior and working at a yoga studio in the summer before senior year.</p>

<p>Other:
I have lived in New York, Switzerland and Argentina. I speak English, French, Spanish fluently and some German. I am Hispanic.</p>

<p>My recommendation letter will be very good, I have a great relationship with one teacher (English) and I plan to go onto something to do with English Lit/writing later on.
I love writing and think my essays will be pretty good.</p>

<p>I am applying early decision to NYU to the Gallatin School of Individualized Study.</p>

<p>What do you think my chances are?</p>

<p>bumpppp
please</p>

<p>Wow, we are really sort of in the same boat!
I think the fact that you've been all over will certainly grant you an international perspective which the Admissions Committee will recognize.
The minority thing also works for you!
I also like that you get to finish with the IB Diploma. I couldn't find an IB French school in the area I was assigned :\
Leadership in sports is clear.
I think you have good chances! :)</p>

<p>With improved SAT scores I don't see NYU rejecting you. However, NYU does not guarantee to meet full demonstrated need and if financial aid is a problem the binding decision of ED could cripple your finances. Just something to keep in mind.</p>

<p>Don't need financial aid :)</p>

<p>Do you think a 2150 would be good enough? I think I can get that..</p>

<p>I am a current NYU student. </p>

<p>you are in for sure. </p>

<p>nyu LOVEEEEEEESSSSSSS international/ global students.
you have a very impressionable internship experience at a young age.
your extracurrics show that you have strong leadership skills.
I got in NYU with a ~2150 SAT.</p>

<p>judging from your profile, nyu seems like a great fit for you too.</p>

<p>I think you're pretty good. Do you have any other EC's (like clubs). Do you know roughly your class rank. Even if your school doesn't rank, your stats are solid and your SAT score isn't bad for NYU (I think its good considering their top 50% have an sat score range from 1800-2100). You're doing just fine. If you can bump your SAT's up that's even better. Good luck dude!</p>

<p>ahh thats amazing! thanks so much</p>

<p>NYU seems like a really good fit for you. Hope you get in! :)</p>

<p>Thank you :)</p>

<p>Inadaze, do you have a "cappex.com" account? It's really useful for a quantitative analysis of admission chance.. And I 2150 would be great, and you are also a BA at everything else. Good luck</p>

<p>I think you have a strong chance.</p>

<p>Strong chance. I have a cousin who got in w/ a 3.5 GPA and 8+ APs. She only knows Japanese and English. NYU is basically all about the money. Its costs a lot!!</p>

<p>In all honesty I don't know much about NYU beyond its reputation of selectivity, but based on my superficial knowledge I'd say that assuming you can increase your SAT I scores by about 80-100 points you should be set. You have strong ECs but your GPA seems to be a tad low. So my advice would be a retake and improvement on the SATs and to keep up your grades to improve your GPA if possible. Good luck, you should be fine!</p>

<p>thank you :) and bump, especially if you're looking into NYU too</p>

<p>Let's be friendsss and go through the experience together! :)</p>

<p>"if financial aid is a problem the binding decision of ED could cripple your finances"</p>

<p>Not true. NYU accepts the Common Application, which has this rule:

[quote]
Should a student who applies for financial aid not be offered an award that makes attendance possible, the student may decline the offer of admission and be released from the Early Decision commitment.

<p>So if they don't offer you enough to make attendance possible, you just say thanks but no thanks, and apply elsewhere RD.</p>

<p>That is true vossron. I was speaking only in cases where family contribution will be much lower than financial aid estimates etc.. If the package given appears to be adequate, but one must still pay most of thefamily contribution.. Anyways. He said money was not a problem.</p>
