Chances: NYU 2014

<p>Hey guys, I'm a junior (well, barely in the summer between junior year and senior year), and I was hoping to get chanced. I'm thinking of applying to (not necessarily applying to all of them though, hahaha) Brown, Columbia, U Penn, Cornell, Emory, Georgetown, Stanford, Brandeis, Duke, NYU, Tufts, U Chicago, and maaaaybe Harvard and Yale. </p>

<p>My (public) school doesn't have AP courses, but I've taken the most rigorous schedule possible, and my GPA is around 3.9-4.0. My school doesn't rank, either, but I'm probably in the top ten or top five out of around 400 students. For the record, I'm in Ontario, Canada, in case that makes any difference, haha.</p>

<p>SATs: 2260
CR 740
M 770
W 750</p>

<p>I plan to take Chem, U.S. History and French SAT Subject Tests in October.</p>

<p>ECs:
- heavily involved in Student Council since Grade 9, elected as rep then, served as independent member this year, President next year
- played French horn in our school band since Grade 9
- founded, edit and write most of school newspaper/writing club
- professional actor out of Toronto</p>

<p>I'm not afraid of the application essay, as I'm a pretty good writer, and I'll have some very good recommendations. I want to apply for political science.</p>

<p>What do you think? Let me know!</p>

<p>Pretty good chances overall, being Canadian is pseudo-international though.</p>

<p>how is someone "pseudo-international"? </p>

<p>you have a solid chance at NYU, you seem like a good fit.</p>

<p>I think you have a great chance and could use NYU almost as a safety(or a low match). Your sats are out of the NYC 75th percentile for everything and your GPA is great. Although I have no idea how being canadian will effect you. </p>

<p>Thanks so much! Hopefully I get in. I was hoping to have NYU as a safety, although it really seems like a great university. But, as everyone knows, who knows what'll happen? Haha, thanks again.</p>

<p>Safety? I don't think so. If you write essays and short answers as though it is your safety school, you're a reject.</p>

<p>I didn't mean that I would apply as if it were a safety; I meant that, after applying as vigourously as everywhere else, hopefully it would be a reliable in.</p>
