edited August 2012 in What Are My Chances?
I am applying Stern ED 1 for International Business and Chinese. I am a white female from Texas.
GPA: 4.22 (out of 5) Weighted (I am not sure about UW but probably a 3.8ish)
ACT: 32 Combined (31 English, 33 Math, 30 Science, 33 Reading, 9 Writing)
RANK: 23/522 (Top 4% of Class)
World History 5
US History 5
European History 3
English Lang 5
Human Geo 5
(I dont plan on submitting the Euro since it was so low, but if i don't, would they dislike my lack of honesty? lol)

I am taking 5/6 more AP's my senior year- (my school limits the ones you can take up until that point) APBio, AP Calc BC, AP Psych, AP English Lit, AP Gov, AP Econ.


Spanish Club (9-12) President (11-12)
Debate Club (10-12) President (11-12)
Model UN (9-12) Treasurer (11) President (12)
Math Tutor (11-12)
Academic Decathlon (12)
Future Business Leaders of America Chapter Founder/President (11-12)
Teen Court Attorney (9-12)
Samaritan Inn Volunteer (9-12)
This summer I did volunteer work in China tutoring children in English (over 100 hours worth)

Unfortunately, my school cut its Chinese program due to budget cuts, but I am very interested in Chinese. I wish that could come across more in my application.


National Commended Scholar (11)
National Forensics League (9-12) Degree of Special Distinction
National Debate/Speech Tournament Qualifier [International Extemp.] (11)
National Honor Society (11-12)

I am also VERY interested in George Washington, and I think I have a better shot there. But is ED2 ok for GW if im rejected from NYU? Or should I save myself the waiting and just apply there first?
Sorry! I'm so indecisive.
Thanks for your help!

    ^^^^ My EC's take up a lot of time in my life, and I love them with all my heart. I know my GPA is low for Stern, but think my passion for involvement could make up for that?
