^^^ what I'm trying to say is that selectivity doesn't correlate 1 to 1 with toughness, although our mothers might think so. I remember my mom had never heard of this place and was bitching me out for not applying to Georgetown.

I personally study economics and minor in Spanish literary studies. If you're into international relations, we are the only undergraduate institution with a semester at the UN in NYC. No model UN bs here. And fucking BARACK went here.


^truth.

my sister goes to georgetown in the school of foreign services (studying interpol/security and arabic) and i just visited it and i didn't like it really.

I did both pretty heavy while I was at school, but I never liked school, so I stopped going to classes, then I stopped going to school all together...

the weed & alc had nothing to do with me not going, its just what I preferred to do instead of going...

For all those applying to NYU, a key factor believe it or not, is what you do outside of your classes, I got accepted and my grades were decent 89ish overall average, but I had a ton of community service/extracurricular activities under my belt (and I was technically a graduate by my junior year.) Advanced Courses FTW!

As for Pratt, I own a Brownstone real close by, and I must say... DO NOT sleep on the girls there. Plus you can cop some very high-grade shit from the people in there.


So besides NYU, I got into:

Morehouse (Full-Ride)
Wake Forest
Cornell
Georgia Tech
Georgia State (I chose this one)
NC A&T
SUNY Stonybrook

Unfortunately, i'm not in school for a semester due to frequent traveling to NY sad, but ill be back by the fall again.

But I say please choose a school you know your going to fit in, because I know a few people who left just because they could relate to the people there.

Not a problem.

Stuff I did:
Bowling Team
Baseball Team
BBU (All mens, empowerment organization)
All About Business Group (Money Management group, featured on Black Enterprise Mag.)
5 Fashion Shows (2 Produced and Coordinated by me)
80+ Hours of Various Community Service
Youth Training for SAT/PSAT
Public Speaking at Various Events
Senior Committee
Yearbook Committee
One of my schools most known non-athletes. (Meaning, I was not a superstar athlete, but everyone still knew who I was.)
Created my own version of a "Senior Lounge" before its actual official implementation. (IE, brought my heavy ass xbox, Halo, Madden, and Phantom Dust, to school 3 times a week, took a school tv, and took over an un-used classroom so people can play games or spades or chill w/o wandering the halls.)
Implemented may changes throughout my school concerning policy, restrictions, and general "upgrades".

So much more stuff I can go on about, but thats like some keys highlights. Too bad most of those mean nothing on a resume.

Bump.

@ MBones

Did you really include all of that on your resume?

'Cause my counselor gave me this whole different resume for NYU.

And sidenote, what did you write your essay on?

No I didn't include all of it on my application but they did ask me about it on the interview.

As far as my essay goes, I don't have the slightest what I wrote for NYU, that was almost 2 years ago and it was one of the first essays I wrote for colleges. But I had almost 8 professionals review it before I submitted it.

BTW what school did/do you go to?

I just got back my May SAT scores.


1930.


Fuck my life. No way I'm getting into NYU or Columbia for that matter.

I'm more angry at myself for getting a 640 in Writing, which I usually get 700+ every time easily.

These are my individual scores:

Math - 650
CR - 640
Writing - 640

Since most colleges don't count Writing, I only have a 1290, which is pretty fucking average.

I'm a junior, soon to be a senior. I'm def. taking it over in October, and sending in early app to NYU in November.

I hear the June one is hella hard, but the curve is extreme. You can get 10 questions wrong in the Math section, and still get a perfect 800.


I have 2 SATIIs lined up for June, so I can't take the SAT until October. Fuck, imagine if they had a SAT test for July or August. I could just study right through and go in and rape it like a 60-year-old bebot.
