Transfer Chances NYU??

I was wondering where I fall in my chances of getting into NYU or what I think as a stretch Columbia or Georgetown.

High School Grades are ehhh but did take APs.

CA Community College:
GPA- 3.8 Scholars Program.
A lot of volunteer work. Especially with children.
Good recommendations.

SAT Scores I don't think are considered to these schools for transfer students.

Really what i'm curious to know is if my good cc grades and activities matter more then my high school faults???

    College grades will be more important than high school but SAT scores still matter and are very important. They help them see if you'll comfortably compete.

    Also note for NYU, there's very little aid for transfers, so if you need financial aid, look for schools that meet need for all. Good luck!
