well shit. i read several threads like this saying nyu had under 4.0 gpaWhat do you guys think of NYU? how hard is it to get in?
pros and cons compared to uc irvine and riverside?
how the hell did you manage to put uci and ucr in the same sentence as nyu?? They are completely different schools academically since NYU is about 3x harder to get into than uci and 5x harder than ucr. parties wise, i heard nyu is pretty wack since their campus is so spread out. it's also super expensive and they give out super shitty financial aid so unless your parents are ballin it's not a good option. uci is slowly improving its reputation academically, but it's a pretty boring school in general. if you love asian females and dancing, this is the school for you. if you love diversity and partying hard, not so much. ucr is decent academically and partying wise i hear its alright from other hb members on here that go there. the school itself is in a shitty area where its hot as fuck every day pretty much.
i have about a 3.7-3.8 gpa so far (still senior) and 2030 sat
do you know of any schools i have a chance at (preferably in or near a big city such as LA, chicago)?
besides ucr, sdsu, csulb?
you have a chance at ucsd, boston college and boston university, etc. just depends what you want to study in college. when people say below a 4.0 gpa they mean unweighted gpas. I believe you're referring to your weighted gpa (correct me if i'm wrong), which is entirely different.
