Hmmm, chances

<p>First of all, I am graduating a year early. I don't know how this will affect my chances.</p>

<p>My gpa is around 4.1. I got 750 verbal/700 math on the SATs and I'm taking three SAT IIs in December. I'm taking two AP classes (English and US History) and the rest are honors classes. I got a 5 on AP European History. I don't have a lot of extra-curriculars, just my school's newspaper and International Club. I'm a fairly good writer (I won my school's "Excellence in Writing" award last year) so my essays will probably good. I lived in Hong Kong for most of my freshman year, so I don't know if that will make me "stand out" or something. And last summer I went to a summer program at a college in England. I think that's all...</p>

<p>Applying to;
Boston University
Sarah Lawrence
and maybe a couple others.</p>

<p>So... how much do I suck?</p>

<p>I don't think you'll have any problems with BU and NYU. But, that's depending on what you want to do as a major? But, overall, your stats look good. Maybe your lack of ecs and APs might bring you down a bit in the standings, but your gpa and sat scores will probably offset it a bit.</p>

<p>thanks :)</p>

<p>i am actually taking all the APs that are offered at my grade level.. so not much i can do about that!</p>

<p>(and I want to major in English, possibly minoring in History)</p>

<p>bump ...........</p>

<p>Honestly NYU is a major reach for you. Your stats are good but at a school like NYU they are just barely above average and with few ECs to set you apart you just aren't that special and therefore, not much of an asset to the school in the minds of admissions reps. You should stay in school another year and get more involved.</p>

<p>anyone else?</p>

<p>bump .............</p>

<p>esp. since you lived in hk for most of your frosh yr, you should stay in school for another yr and get more involved</p>
