Nervous to send in my app...

<p>Scared and frustrated out of my mind.</p>

<p>nyu poly is my top choice school and i am afraid to apply at all....</p>

<h2>priority deadline is coming up and i want to submit my app but i was wondering what everyone thinks of my app:</h2>

<p>Academics/Test Scores:
GPA: 3.00 UW</p>

<p>Max SCIENCE/MATH AP's/Hnrs availaible.</p>

<p>ACT: 28
super score: 29
SAT: 2010
Super score: 2010</p>

<p>SAT2's: 660 BIO E/M and I just took math2 and i think i did reasonable.</p>

<h2>Regents: all 80s and a 78 in chem (i was in a car accident the day before and had 48 stitches and was in a crap-load of pain/stress)</h2>

Nothing spectacular. Average stuff-</p>

<p>3 clubs with no positions in any (3-4 years in all clubs)
Out of school sports (tennis/karate/swimming)
volunteer work ~150 hrs at hospital
Doctor Shadowing ~120 hrs in foreign hospital</p>

<h2>raised a huge amount of money with an organization for funding at the same hospital i shadowed at.</h2>

Essays are well written.</p>

<h2>LoRs are also strong especially the one written by the doctor i shadowed who was director of his department</h2>

<h2>no major hooks besides the fact that i am the first person in my entire extended family to ever go to an american university but i am not sure that makes me first gen or whatever cause my parents are both educated (doctors).</h2>

<h2>Major: Bio engineering/premed (should i mark undecided instead to increase my chances?)</h2>

<p>Where Naviance puts me:
<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>


<p>i posted the same thread a long time ago but with some 'hypothetical test scores' but it never worked out under a different name. Forgot the password and username though....</p>

<p>per say i was eventually rejected, would it be possible to send in an appeal letter later with solid reasons why they should reconsider my app? (retaking the SATs again for a foreign school in pakistan in march, will be on varsity tennis team in march and will have a solid amount of volunteer hours (around 50+ more).</p>

<p>No idea about Poly, so I can't really say too much.</p>

<p>Your SAT is good; your ACT is alright.</p>

<p>Your GPA, however, is quite low. </p>

<p>It seems 10% of students have a GPA lower than yours, so I suppose you're not so bad off. </p>

<p>I'm unfamiliar with Poly admissions, as isn't really a true part of NYU; as such it isn't nearly as competitive for admissions, thus I would say you should get in.</p>

<p>@nyu2013: thank you for the speedy and reassuring reply. Just curious, where did you find the 10% stat?</p>


<p>oh wow. thanks for that.</p>

<p>As far as an appeal letter if you got rejected? Not really done and is considered inappropriate. They have no obligation to explain a rejection to you nor entertain an appeal.</p>
