Lots of extracurriculars, leadership positionsAug 26 2005Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Lots of extracurriculars, leadership positions. High class rank. (for us non-minority students...) I personally know about NYU going after minority students who don't even care about the school/academics and offering amazing financial aid- because of ethnic last names even - which really pisses me off since there are those of us who work their asses off and have tons of qualifications and who are dying to go to NYU and get next to nothing because we are plain old white kids. NYU bureaucracy sucks.

If your SAT is above 1400 and your GPA is above 3.5, you're fine. This is all I can tell you. I had a 1560 SAT and a less than good GPA of like 3.6, and received 12,000 in scholarship money.

Definitely don't exclude NYU from your list because you think you don't meet the criteria. Personally, there's no way I should have gotten into anything but a community college, given my high-school GPA (2.8, how's that for embarassing?), but NYU took other things (SAT scores, Essays) deeply into account, and I got in to Tisch. Work your butt off on your essay. Crazy things happen.
SAT: 1410 Female

Write a brilliant essay, highlighting what is unique about you. This is what NYU is looking for. In my essay, I focused on my experiences living in other countries and how that has affected my desire to study at the school.

I think you pretty much need high grades and perfection if you're Asian. But if you're black or white, they lower the standards to cater for you. It pisses me off.
