i'm a massive lurker, and my stats are 3.47/172 (october scores). I am quite hesitant of applying ED to NYU but fear getting locked out of CCN. How do I look for NYU RD considering my low gpa scores and that I'm an international student with average softs?

Thank you guys so much!


The only cautionary note is that your GPA is lower than all those NYU data points. (They're all 172/3.50-3.53).

This guy got in with a 3.4/171, but he also had a TBI, and didn't get in until July:

Anyways, it looks like you've got a shot at NYU, but not much of one at Columbia or Chicago. I'd do RD, but if you'd take NYU with no scholarship over anything else, ED may be worth it. Play around with and look at the data that's out there.

You certainly have a shot. I wouldn't recommend doing the "auto search" like Midwest did because that takes applicants from several years back. Admissions standards have changed quite a bit even from two years ago.

Here's a representation of what happened last year. I had to expand your ranges a little more than usual to get a good number. Midwest's caveat that all of the NYU 172s had at least a 3.5 still stands, though. Don't let that get you too down, though, because there aren't really any 3.4Xs to compare that to.
