<p>My recommendations should be excellent, and i think(hope) my essays are pretty good.</p>

<p>My other schools are:
Rutgers, New Brunswick
Stevens IT</p>

<p>If you could tell me what you think my chances are, or other schools that would fit please please let me know.</p>

<p>btw im applying to the college of arts and sciences</p>


<p>With a good essay, and several letters of recommendation your chances are as follows:
NYU - reach
Lehigh - possible match / reach
Bucknell - possible match
TCNJ - don't know
Lafayette - reach
Rutgers, New Brunswick - match
Stevens IT - possible match</p>

<p>NYU reach?- possibly, mostly because of your GPA. If not for the GPA, I would say your in, but that makes me bite my tongue. Did you apply early or regular? I applied to NYU early and your SAT's are better, but my GPA is higher. If only we could share stats.... Good Luck!</p>

<p>thx guys-- i applied regular and my SAT IIs are as follows:
Math IIc- 750
Writing- 660
US History- 590 (awful)</p>

<p>anybody else?</p>

<p>do SAT II's influence acceptance or just placement?</p>



<p>Your rank is going to hurt you at NYU. Your SAT is decent, but nothing impressive for NYU.</p>

<p>Your best bet is to have a great essay and recs. to serve as an ace in the hole. Besides Lehigh, it seems you may have a great shot at the other schools on your list.</p>

<p>Good luck.</p>

<p>-NYU class of '00</p>
