NYU ED CAS Chances

<p>What are my chances of getting in NYU CAS Early Decision? </p>

<p>I'm applied for Economics in CAS</p>

<p>GPA: 3.41 (weighted, school doesn't do unweighted)
Class Rank: N/A (school doesn't do)</p>

<p>-9th grade (horrible): 2.8 GPA, 10th grade: 3.4 GPA, 11th grade: 3.8 GPA (all weighted)
-my GPA is on a major upward trend if that helps
-after high school is over I will have done 3 APs and 3 Honors classes
-achieved honor roll or high honor roll 10th and 11th grade</p>

<p>SAT: 2070 Composite, (1350/1600)
-690 Reading -660 Math -720 Writing </p>

<p>-tennis player
-Clubs (Junior Statesmen of America, Forensics and Debate)
-Tennis player
-Piano player
-French National Honor Society
-volunteering at an elderly care center, internationally</p>

<p>Essay: really good I think (I wrote about an interest of mine, as well as some initiative I took to pursue it)
-I wrote pretty good supplements as well (I think I showed pretty high level of interest in NYU)
Teacher Recommendations: I think they are REALLY GOOD also
Guidance Counselor Rec: They always write the same recs for everyone, but I tried to have them explain why my GPA was lower earlier in high school</p>

<p>-I don't need financial aid if that matters (I've been hearing that even though they are need-blind, it sort of has become a factor)</p>

<p>Race: Asian male</p>

<p>I really want to go to NYU, which is why I'm early decisioning, but I don't know if I will get in.
-Do you think my SAT score will possibly offset my lower GPA?? NYU's average GPA is like a 3.6 or 3.7 weighted or unweighted. I'm not sure. It still seems pretty hard for me to get in early decision anyway. Thanks</p>

<p>The upward trend will definitely work in your favor so keep that up for senior year too.</p>

<p>Overall, I think you should be a fairly competitive applicant. ED will definitely help. Good luck!</p>

<p>3.4 unwieghted is bad for nyu...let alone weighted. above-average sat score. no leaderhhip in ec's. sorry, but it doesn't seem like ustand a chance. ur sat isnt good enough to offset ur terrible gpa, which is the most important factor. maybe u can try shooting for somethign like BU, MDU, GWU...in any case, good luck</p>

Did you ever get in?
