SAT: 1980 Female
Get good recommendationsDec 07 2011Political Science
Get good recommendations. It goes unsaid that good grades are prerequisite, and doing extracurriculars never hurts. NYU is full of people out to prove themselves - if you want to get in, you must work hard for it.
SAT: 2010 Male
If you really want to get in, make sureOct 12 2011Other
If you really want to get in, make sure you write an extremely good essay, do lots of volunteer work/community service, and maybe hold a job or two. Also have a high GPA and SAT/ACT scores. NYU looks at everything. School clubs/sports didn't seem to matter as much as everything else.

I studied a lot and got good grades in high schoolOct 01 2011Undecided
I studied a lot and got good grades in high school. I also had a decent amount of work/volunteer experience, which I included on my application. It definitely helps to write amazing application essays, because that's something that NYU seems to really focus on.

I was an average student and my SAT scoreJun 10 2011Other
I was an average student and my SAT score was the lowest out of those I've heard from my group of friends. I think what helped get me in was that I had taken two study abroad trips to Europe before I was 17 and in my senior year of high school, I was president of two intellectual clubs. Don't be afraid to call the admissions office and beg to get in, either, because I also did that.
