Basically show them that you have ambition and that you are not one sided. Show you have interests outside of your major, particularly community service

I had a 3.7 weighted GPA and 1890 on my SAT's. Do not assume that just because you don't have a 4.9 and 2400 that you won't get in. NYU is a global campus, what they're looking for is well-rounded, diverse and driven kids. My essays, which are what I believe got me in, all had their own way of displaying my diversity. I talked about my multi-racial background, the significance of a religious object as a non-religious person and about my experience playing women's rugby. Make yourself sound like the most interesting and open-minded person you possibly can. Make that admissions board want to know MORE about you! Be in clubs, be a great community member (or, lets be honest, make it SEEM like you are a great community member) and you'll be fine.

-Use the short answers to show your personality, don't write them in a formal tone

Just have something approaching a decent academic record and you're in.

Get good grades and good test scores and write essays that an admissions rep would want to read.
