<p>Good recommendations from my two teachers ("one of the top few students i have met in my 22-year teaching career" lol), supposedly good guidance Rec. An excellent supplemental recommendation from my editor at the newspaper I write for.</p>

<p>Good ,unique essay</p>

<p>I think you have a decent shot. There was no reason to list the grades from 7th and 8th grade, trust me, those will not even be a factor. You may want to try to turn the newspaper thing into some kind of niche since it seems like you are significantly involved in that area. </p>

<p>Good luck.</p>

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