I used to think NYU was pretty easy, but it's getting harder every year. This year, the acceptance rate dropped to around 25%, which is about 4% lower than last year...
I think you'll get waitlisted.

Just wanted to let you know that if you get rejected NYU early decision, you cannot apply again for regular. It's basically "once you've been rejected, you've been rejected" policy. I was surprised to hear this, so if you apply early, keep this in mind.
You seem like a strong applicant, however you may seem fairly average to the admissions officers. NYU does not require SAT IIs, but if you take one or two in subjects you are good at (preferably one you are taking an AP/IB class in) and get a good score, you might get a slight edge. Good luck!

I am taking SAT II US History in May. I was going to take Writing and Math IIC in June, but now I've decided to retake my SAT then, and take the SAT II's in October. I figured that since NYU didn't require them, I'd be better off boosting my SAT I before I apply ED.
I have a Q- if I get a 1450+, does that give me a really good chance, considering that 1400 seems to be in the top 35% of those admitted. Any suggestions for what I can do to boost my appearance?
I forgot to add that I've worked a constant job for 2 (will be 3 years).
Will having an Egyptian father and Israeli mother ( I'm a 1st gen American) help me at all? You'd think that's an interesting couple..
And what about being in California- will that help or hurt me? thanks again for all your help

I think your raised SAT score would give you a much better chance. Colleges like showing off a higher SAT average when it is time for the new US News rankings. Being from California probably won't hurt you or help you much really.
By the way, I'm taking the SAT US in May also. How are you preparing? Thanks.

I'm pretty much not preparing.. I'm just gunna see how I do 1 week before the AP test (which I don't know wh, but I'm not really studying much for either).

California hurts you, because first you're not a URM from your ethnicity, and also California is one of the most competitive pools of applicants.

Kind of sad how ethnicity dominates everything nowadays, isn't it? =(. And we're trying to blur racial barriers/ lines with this system.. oy!
Anyway, anyone have any ideas what I can do to boost my application, considering I really want to go to NYU.
Thanks for the help =]
