May 27 2014Neuroscience/Cognitive Science Keep your grades up, at least a 3.5 to get into the more academically-centered schools (CAS and Stern), take a few AP's if your school offers them, do extra-curriculars, etc. Gallatin, Steinhardt, and LSP are really not that hard to get into. CAS and Stern require better applicants as they are better schools, and Tisch applicants, well, good luck. Have good test scores, and on your application to NYU, make sure that your supplemental essays are well-written. This is one of the main ways NYU determines your level of interest in their school, so pay a lot of attention to these extra essays. Other than that, it's around a 30% acceptance rate so it's really not *that* difficult to get into.

Oct 06 2013Psychology 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.
