I know it’s a bit early, but I was wondering if it was worth it to ED I to NYU CAS. I’m a prospective CompSci Major, and have good scores, but a relatively mediocre GPA. If it’s an important factor, I’d be paying full tuition with no aid.
8 APs(U.S. Gov, Comp Gov, Micro Econ, Macro Econ, AP Lit, AP Lang, AP CompSci A, AP CompSci Principles)
1530 SAT(might be slightly higher after retake)
ECs: VP of Programming Club, VP of Young Republicans(this might be a red flag for NYU), member of Model UN, and Econ Club, paid employment as a private programming tutor and at a tech camp.
Awards: Outstanding Delegate at a prestigious MUN Conference, Group Champion for Federal Reserve Challege(Liberty Street), CyberPatriot 2nd Best in State(gold and silver teams)
Asperger’s Syndrome(which caused problems during first semester of junior year)
Attend a well regarded high school in metro NYC
Dad is Indian, mom is white(I don’t think this helps)
Parents are college educated and well-off(so not first generation)
Demonstrated Interest: Visited NYU in February, and attended virtual infosession at my school.
I don’t mean for this to sound obnoxious, and this is a completely geniune question. As such, I would appreciate sincere answers based off of previous admit rates for ED I students. If there’s anything missing from this post that could help determine my chances, please let me know.
