Probable at all. Sports a big plus. Would help if you can break 1400 SAT. Might want to think of several more schools at NYU level.
See my comment in "Another NYU question"

I am curious. Why so much interest in NYU on this site?

which other schools would you consider "on the NYU level"?

NYU is the best school in the whole, wide world...

NYU = all-you-can-eat international chinese buffet

By the way, did you receive the invitation letter for the March 9 thing in the square?

By Ann85 (Ann85) on Friday, February 14, 2003 - 11:53 pm: Edit

Nope, i didn't recieve that letter, which is why I posted, im sorta scared about my chances now...

By wolfsterx on Saturday, February 15, 2003 - 12:51 am: Edit

Well, I heard that they send those letters to those who are well above the average stats. I think you should be receiving it soon... maybe tomorrow...

thanks, :)...hopefully i will

wolfsterx, Are you applying to/attending NYU?

Ann85,
It depends a lot on your intended major, but you might think of Tufts, Carnegie-Mellon, Johns-Hopkins (especially if you decide to play Lacrosse), Cornell, a bunch of the 7 Sisters, etc. The USNWR list #'s 20-40 would be good shots.
