hey, im just starting my second semester of junior and desperately want to go to NYU. if you guys could give me a couple opinions...i know my chances aren't great, but i want to see how bad they are, exacly:
white female
GPA: 3.1 (yeah, i know)
SAT I: 1400
-i go to a competitive, private, midwestern school that seems to be well known by most of the top colleges
-i did speech and debate for 2 years with moderate sucess, and i now do mock trial and the team should go to nationals this year
-i'm an editor of my schools newspaper
-i will graduate with 150+ community service hours
-for the past two years i did summer writing programs, and plan to intern with a newspaper this summer
-i can write a very good essay
-good recs
i know i dont really have much of a chance, but i thought maybe if i applied early.......thanks for the opinions.
