confusion!

<p>i have applied for admission into mit, however the application to eecs does not make use of gre scores and does not allow an essay to be submitted, which means my gpa counts for a lot more..and my gpa is avergae at best. so my chances for mit seem to be gone out the window, even if i had an exceptionally high gre and lots of experience...no way to demonstrate that???</p>

<p>i am going to apply for columbia and nyu...however I want to ideally be doing archaeology or anthropology...what are my chances with a bachelors and masters in computer science? i cant find out on the site pages and have not recieved email replies.</p>

<p>what other unviersities on the east coast(close to NY) would be worth applying to?</p>
