Essay (39) |
Definitely don't exclude NYU from your list because you think you don't meet the criteria. Personally, there's no way I should have gotten into anything but a community college, given my high-school GPA (2.8, how's that for embarassing?), but NYU took other things (SAT scores, Essays) deeply into account, and I got in to Tisch. Work your butt off on your essay. Crazy things happen.

| Jun 11 2005 | Write a brilliant essay, highlighting what is unique about you. This is what NYU is looking for. In my essay, I focused on my experiences living in other countries and how that has affected my desire to study at the school. Study some, do activities in school, get a decent SAT score, and write a good essay...not really anything to say there.
hard but not super hard.... i had a 3.4 in HS but very strong test scores- 1500 SAT(800 M 700 V), SAT2's- 800M, 800 BIO, 800 Chem, 780 Phys and 710 writing, did a decent amount of extracurricular stuff but nothing out of the ordinary and i thought my essay and rec's were ok. aim for a 3.6+ gpa, sat around 1350, and good extracurriculars to have a good chance at nyu even though it varies a lil bit depending on your major. make sure to apply ED if you think you're borderline.
