is there anyway you could improve your sat's? your other stats look amazing.. so your only weakness is the sat scores.. if there is anyway you could take them again, try your best..

I think you might have a chance because you are a URM and it seems like you have a special case. good luck!

my move to maryland from cali, i wrote it like a narrative. since nyu doesn't offer interviews, i decided to write it like i was talking to them. it's funny, yet very touching.
