Chances for NYU

I am a female attending a well ranked Vermont public school. I applied ED 2 to NYU. I have an unweighted GPA of 3.66. I had a bad freshman year (didn’t take it as seriously as I should have and now regretting that) with a mix of A’s and B’s and one C+. Sophomore year was all A’s and two B’s. Junior and senior year I have had nothing below an A-. I take a rigorous schedule for my school, and have taken AP Bio (4 on AP exam), AP Government, and AP statistics. Had an 1880 on my SAT with a 620 on my math subject SAT and a 780 on my bio subject SAT. I have a large amount of consistent extracurriculars which I’m hopeful will help for my grades which have been on the lower side. I am in three clubs at school (neuroscience, environmental action, and class council). I run competitively (three half marathons and 1 marathon) and I am a varsity nordic skier. I took a month long pre college program at Barnard College where I took two classes last summer. I have been singing in private voice lessons every week since I was 10, and I am in three choirs (two of which are auditioned and competitive). Along with that I have 20+ hours of community service each year. I know my scores are on the lower side but within range, so I guess I just want to know if the possibility is there!

Let me know what you think! I appreciate the help :slight_smile:

Hello @iliveforavocado, your academic records seem a bit weak for NYU’s standards. Have you suggested using the test flexible policy, (if you think your SAT is below their standards)? This may be the best option for you and stellar essays will be needed if you want to have a good chance of getting in. But otherwise, good luck!

Which college at NYU? You probably have a decent, but by no means certain, chance at CAS. Gallatin is “quirky” and “holistic,” so they can be a little tough to assess.

@woogzmama I am applying to CAS! Sorry I realized that’s probably important to mention! Im not sure how CAS admissions differ from the other schools but I know they vary greatly from one to the next in terms of acceptances. Thanks for the help!
