Pick intimate experiences to write about in your essaysOct 05 2006Video/Media
Pick intimate experiences to write about in your essays and responses. They want to see your personal spin on the same topic that everyone else is writing on. They receive the most applications out of any private university in the country, and anything to make you stand out is beneficial.
If you are applying to Tisch (especially film & dramatic writing), add as much emotion and sincerity into your essays as possible. Tell a story with your essays and make the reader feel what you feel.

My scores were great for my school and area,Jan 09 2006Psychology
my scores were great for my school and area, but average for nyu. my gpa was unimpressive. i think they must have accepted me based more on my essay and extra-curriculars / community service. they want decent, above average scores but also weigh personal elements more than other schools may. and dont underestimate your future giving potential as a deciding factor. recent fund-raisers have raised billions in the last two years.
ACT: 29 SAT: 1320 Male
Apply, and hope for the best and prepare forNov 27 2005Philosophy
Apply, and hope for the best and prepare for anything else. i don't care what anyone tells you, take it from a person that has been there and did it his own way, be yourself. if that means not always doing everything and working your ass off, thats ok. Just chill, take things in stride, dont be overwhelmed, break things up and finish one thing at a time. Remember, especially in your senior year and your college freshmen year, do things that help you relax but get your shit done!
