My chances of getting into NYU Stern

<p>I am completely new to this site, so pardon me if I make any mistake.</p>

<p>I am currently a junior a public high school in New York and desperately want to go to NYU Stern. I would love to hear opinions on my chances to get into Stern or possibly other great business programs. I do want to stay relatively close to New York for college.</p>

<p>First, I am a white latino from Brazil. I immigrated to the U.S. when I was a 10. I speak Portuguese, English, and Spanish fluently.</p>

<p>Freshman: All honor classes, all A+</p>

<p>Sophomore: All honor classes and 2 AP's (Psychology and European History), all A+, and 5's on both AP tests</p>

<p>Junior (where I am now): I am taking 4 AP classes (Lang, U.S. History, Physics B, and Statistics) and the rest are honor classes. I am also taking a college business law course my school offers where students who complete the course receive college credit. Ultimately, I want to apply to law school (Columbia most likely), so this class is quite important to me. This year, I expect mostly A+, an A here and there, and maybe a B+ in my math class (infamously the hardest class in my entire school). It won't be a perfect academic year, but I expect it to be pretty good. I haven't taken the SAT or the ACT. I have a tutor and expect a good grade.</p>

<p>Senior: I don't know anything of this year yet (of course), but I expect to take some AP classes and have pretty good grades.</p>

<p>Other pertinent information:</p>

<p>My extracurricular activities include my participation in DECA, Mathletes, and Forensics (Speech & Debate). I am currently secretary of DECA and expect to be either President or Vice President next year. I am an officer of Mathletes and will probably be again next year. Lastly, I am one of the captain of my speech and debate team and will be captain next year and possibly even president or secretary. </p>

<p>My GPA is pretty high and in the top 10%</p>

<p>Last summer I volunteered in an orphanage in Brazil teaching children English.</p>

<p>I might apply ED to Stern</p>

<p>I have moved schools A LOT. Currently, I have been to 7 different schools. This is a result of my family's love of moving houses and therefore having me attend different districts. The schools that I am in now I came to as a sophomore. I am telling you guys this because my counselor told me that apparently colleges like to see students that are able to switch schools and still adapt and prosper.</p>

<p>Finally, my school is ridiculously competitive. Basically, everyone wants to go to an Ivy League college.</p>

<p>That's all, folks! I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!</p>

<p>Sorry for the grammatical errors! I was typing quickly!</p>

<p>We can’t really chance you when you don’t have any SAT/ACT scores…</p>
