New York University - Chances

<p>An Early Decision Applicant</p>

<p>Asian-American (Korean)
*This might hurt my chances if they compare me to an average Korean-American stats...which is like 3.6/4.0 G.P.A. and 1400 haha</p>

<p>Both English and Korean are my primary languages...however I lived in the U.S. for total 5 years.</p>

<p> applied E.D. to:
New York University - Gallatin School of Individualized Study</p>

<p>Future Career - Social Worker</p>

<p>New Jersey State's top 6th public high school. Very competitive...
this might give you some idea (about 30 - 40% are Korean-Americans, and they all have like 3.6/4.0 G.P.A. and over 1400 SAT1 and 700s SAT2s) our SCHOOL's AVERAGE SAT score is around high 1200s and close to 1300.</p>

<p>Unweighted G.P.A.
Cumulative - 3.2
Freshman - 2.6
Sophomore - 3.2
Junior - 3.7 or 3.8
*Upward trend both G.P.A. and quality of my schedule</p>

<p>Pleas rate my chances! (0-8)

<p>0 - Absolutely No Way! apply to a community college Jason! f*in idiot!
1 - 0% < x < 25% Jason, don't be an idiot. REJECT!
2 - 25% Jason, I higly doubt it.
3 - 25% < x < 50% eh...I doubt it Jason...sorry

8 - 100% You know you will get in Jason.</p>

<p>By the way, I applied Early Decision.</p>

<p>thank you!</p>

<p>Somewhere between 3 and 4.</p>

<p>Hoo_29, do you think my SAT is too low for Gallatin?
Which factor is the killer?
At least I don't have x < 1300 lololol
but too bad i am not from Georgia!</p>

<p>your stats all look good except for your GPA, which is the glaring problem Yes the upward trend is good but I don't know if a 3.2 is good enough for NYU.</p>

<p>So I'd put your shot at about a 4.</p>

<p>Yes, GPA is the biggest problem...among several lol
However, I am hoping that my Counselor's recommendation letter might explain as to the reason I did not do well, and how i turned around and start studying (?) lol</p>

<p>thanks, more more more replies! please PLEASE! raTe(notice the capitalized T, just so that I do not cause any me!</p>

<p>That's just my guess. Who knows? Good luck. The GPA will really hurt, but you are an ED applicant, so they will look at your ECs and stuff more than just numbers. O, and why did you say you wish you were from GA? I'm kinda confused.</p>

<p>Freshman - 2.6 What happened dude lol
But, other than that, I'll give it a 4.733413461636565 rating.</p>
