Chances for ED next year

<p>I'm currently a junior and NYU is my top choice for college next next year. </p>

<p>I've taken SATs twice
first time I got CR: 630 M: 590 W:600
second CR: 670 M: 590 W: 590
Not the best but I plan to take the ACT which I think I'll do a lot better on. I'm also taking the math 2, lit, and us history subject tests in June. I took World History last year and got a 750. </p>

<p>GPA
Sophomore: 4.23 (weighted)
Sophomore and Freshman combined: 4.1 (weighted)
Junior year so far: 3.96 (UW) 4.3(W)</p>

<p>I have taken AP World (5). This year I'm in AP US and AP Lang. Next year I'm taking AP Bio, AP Lit, AP Calc BC, and AP Gov.
I can speak an intermediate level of Spanish. (Will have taken 4 years next year) </p>

<p>Extra Curriculars
I am on my school's newspaper and serve as the Managing Editor right now and will probably have the same position next year. I have served on it since freshman year.</p>

<p>I am a part of my school's National Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society. I plan to run for positions in both clubs next year, mostly because I want them to be more active. </p>

<p>I am a part of the school's Key Club and Invisible Children branch (raises awareness about child soldiers in northern Uganda). </p>

<p>I have a little bit of volunteering experience but I want to get a lot more involved in my community. I am currently apart of my city's Red Cross Youth Action Team. </p>

<p>For the past two years I have worked as a lifeguard at the pools on my military base. A few months ago I got certified for WSI and have been teaching lessons since then. I've also worked at my mother's daycare really since I was since 6th grade. </p>

<p>Sports
JV Cheerleader for 9th and 10th grade. In 10th grade I was the team's captain. Also I am a part of club volleyball outside of school.
For 11th grade I served as one of the football team's managers which took about 20 hours a week out of my life during the fall.</p>

<p>I'm also looking at Brown, Columnia, GWU, BU, BC, Georgetown, and University of Rochester.</p>

<p>for a better assessment, your total UW grade would be helpful, but i digress. your SAT score is pretty low. you might get LSP'd, otherwise, low reach.</p>

<p>no offence, but you should take brown off the list. i don't think they're going to take you w/ that SAT score no matter how high the GPA</p>

<p>I'm not completely sure of my unweighted because my school only gives us weighted. I think for freshman year it was around 3.7 or 3.8. Sophomore it was at least 3.9.</p>

<p>I think we need your rank... raise that SAT score and you're definitely in. you also have the option to just submit a bunch of APs or SAT IIs (go to the website for specifics). I would consider that.</p>

<p>u'll def get in for early decision. i knew a few people who had slightly lower sat scores and got in ED and RD (in the LSP school)</p>

<p>I'm in the top 5% of my class. Theres about 800 kids in the class i think. </p>

<p>Yeah I'm probably submitting three subject tests. The World from last year unless I do better on US. Lit when I take it and Math.</p>

<p>haha we are the same with SAT scores. i took it twice too! I did way better on the ACT though, so maybe that will be the same for you? I got a 31 ACT, so that translates way higher than my SAT on the conversion table. I am doing Gallatin ED, which stresses the "independent" nature of a student, and your ECs and everything seem to support that mind set, so maybe you should check that out? Best of luck! :)</p>

<p>haha nooo way. i got a 31 too!
yeah i was gonna do cas but then i found gallatin and thought it was the perfect fit for me.
same to you too! hopefully well be seeing each other sometime in the fall of 2011. :)</p>

<p>haha that is too bizarre!!! and yes, hopefully we will! (if i don't die of anxiety between now and december......) ahahhaa.</p>

<p>oh, i know the feeling. i almost wish december 15th would be here already so i would know and not have to go through this anxiety.</p>

<p>haha i am totally with you. i just want to know either way, it would just make me a lot less stressed! haaaa, despite the fact that it's almost out of our hands at this point. are you doing the common app or the nyu specific one (through embark)?</p>

<p>i hadnt really decided yet. you?</p>

<p>I think you need to get higher standardized testing scores for prospective admittance into NYU. I would say that if you scored anywhere in the middle 50%, everything else in your resume would make up for any "flaws."</p>

<p>i'm thinking about the nyu one because i've heard that it gives you more room to be "creative" than the common app does, but i guess ill have to do some better investigating ahahaahaa.</p>

<p>what school are you applying to?</p>

<p>im applying to gallatin</p>

<p>Do not apply ED if money is an issue. Your FA may not be as good as RD.</p>
