I am an international student who has lived in more than five countries. Being able to have contact with so much different cultures was one thing that I gained from this life, but unfortunately our family had to be posted somewhere else again at the end of my junior year (ya I know, the most crucial year). We had no choice coz our gov't said so (my dad works for the embassy). On top of that, my old school had the IB system and now my current school follows the AP. (That explains the two types of HS GPA in my stats) so my old school weighted the IB courses where as this school didn't coz it doesn't recognize them since they're not APs. I hope that the colleges just understand my situation and do not view it as slacking off. oh ya btw, i'm asian.

I want to study international business so I am looking at:

NYU (ED?), BU, UVA, Emerson,

I really like NYU, but do you think I would have a chance with ED?
Im not sure if I can accepted to them, please give me your honest thoughts. If you know any other colleges that might fit my stats, please tell me. Thank you so much! Any feedback would be most appreciated.

Work on your test scores and polish up the way you explain your situation and I'd say you'll be fine at the schools you're applying to. If NYU ED is really where you want to go, then by all means, put it in as NYU ED.
