    What is your unweighted gpa? Most of the application looks in range for Tandon, but an unweighted gpa presumably somewhere below 3.5 will be a weak point.

    Typical unweighted gpa for entering students at NYU is 3.7, so yeah it’s a bit low, even for a school with grade deflation (somewhat implied by your standardized test scores being quite a bit higher than one might usually expect with a 3.3 gpa). I’d apply if I were you but treat it as a reach, and make sure you apply to matches and safeties too.

    I just had a bad selection of classes in freshman year, but my graph of gpa is an upwards trend and I am ending with a 3.8 weighted and 4.2 unweighted for junior year. Will they take this into consideration?
