<p>I'm a first generation female to go to college in my family. NYU has always been my dream since I was a child and I am a rising senior in my high school and have applied under early decision. I would like to know my chances. I would appreciate it greatly.
I have a 3.8 GPA.
Act: 26</p>

<p>Varsity swimmer for 4 years
Varsity water polo for 2 years. Culinary team member for three years.
Culinary captain my senior year, as we advance to nationals.
Culinary competition winners 2nd and 4th in state the past two years.
I participated in the Duke TIP program.
I was an alumni for NYLF. Where i spent a week in DC meeting legislators and congressmen. Also I was nominated for Governors Honors Program, GLobal Youth Leadership Conference in China, and National Youth Leadership Forum for Medical students at Emory University. All are academic programs to further your knowledge and challenge yourself further than your normal high school curriculum.
I started a branch of Heart for Africa at my school and I have been the president for two years.
I am also Vice president of Model UNited Nations where we compete in conferences at UGA and Georgia Tech.
I'm a member of Beta club, Latin honors society, and the technical honors society.
I am also the member of the Latin club.
I have been volunteering as a medical football assistant for 3 years for our high school football team and have studied and learned under the team doctor/physical therapist. </p>

<p>I am an AP scholar and have taken the maximum amount of AP classes that my school allows. I will have finished with 10 AP courses and an average of 4/5s on all of them. My senior schedule is a full schedule with 5 APs, continuing culinary so I can compete at nationals this year, and continuing my 3rd year of Latin. </p>

<p>My AP classes consist of:
AP Human Geography
AP Language
AP World History
AP United States History
AP Literature and Competition
AP Biology
AP Macro Economics
AP Micro Economics
AP Government
AP Psychology </p>

<p>I am also on a research group for student website development for the HEFG. It is an organization that is in charge of all culinary and hospitality academic changes in Georgia and the south east region.</p>

<p>I have almost 1,000 hours of community service, and will have over a 1,000 by the end of my senior year.
I have doubled the amount of sciences and language/English requirements that are required by my high school.
I also have a couple of recommendation options which consist of my chef mentor who has watched my passion grow for the sciences as we will move onto nationals this year, a teacher which has been with me for 4 years, and a couple more that I think will help show my passion for sciences and my focus and determination to be the best at what I want to do. Your recommendation on my chances would be greatly appreciated and I will chance you back!</p>

<p>Wow, 1000 hours? That's amazing. Your GPA is pretty good for NYU, but the ACT score is a bit low. I think that if you elaborated on your community service hours and why you had such a passion, you'll have a great chance!</p>

<p>Chance me back? <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1285241-chance-me-carnegie-mellon.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1285241-chance-me-carnegie-mellon.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Please chance!!! I will chance back!!</p>

<p>You seem to have a pretty good shot. Up your ACT grade cuz they might offer you LSP instead of I'm assuming CAS?</p>

<p>I actually wouldn't be upset if I got LSP, I would do the study abroad program. I actually just sent in another teacher rec, from my AP literature teacher who told them about my passion and how amazing my writing is.</p>

<p>LSP isn't bad or anything, it just wouldn't be what you applied for first for your first year, that's what I was getting at. My sister's friends who went abroad for their first year LOVED it.</p>

<p>Gotcha. Thanks for the advice. :) I'm so nervous about getting in.</p>

<p>Please chance me!!</p>

<p>Haha same here, I feel your pain :P</p>

<p>Lol, I'm a first generation so I have no clue if I'm good enough or how this college thing works /: lol</p>

<p>Okay, so aside from you ACTs, you look great for NYU.</p>

<p>I recently got accepted to NYU, so here is what I had:
1. Extremely low GPA; 3.45
2. 34 on my ACTs and a 2250 on my SATs
3. Nationally recognized for karate
4. Varsity crew for three years
5. I was apart of NHS, luckily I had above a 3,5 when I applied
6. President of JSA (junior state of America) for two years
7. I took seven APs</p>
