    Hm...it seems like a stretch. Your scores are very different on the two sections and your GPA won't really help or hurt you. Especially applying as a Caucasian/finance major, the business school was very selective this year

    Is it worth while to apply as a different major and then change it after a semester?

    I know a student who had a 94 average and slightly lower SATs with many more ECs including leadership and Eagle Scout. He was rejected from liberal arts. Still apply, Nova is a great school, but also have some safety schools you love just in case. I'm not trying to be discouraging just realistic. Good luck.
