I'll be a CC student very soon. I want study and go to NYU very very very very very much. But my application is really kinda weak and low SAT score. Cuz i've been living in Hong Kong for years and English is not my first language, and different education system comparing to the US. I'll be going to CC just because I want to study in NYU, that CC is partnership with NYU Steinhardt. Should I apply ED to let them know i'm interested in NYU first lol? Will it affect my chance of getting into NYU in the future?
I'm about to apply ED1 to NYU, have a 3.7 gpa and 1960 on SAT (yung 700 math score). I was told that NYU was a "Target" school for me with those grades/scores without extracurriculars/essay. You can use that as a reference point for your scores I guess, If you have citizenship outside of US some schools look highly upon that, IDK about NYU, though.
Edit: I visited the campus twice. If you get the opportunity I would highly suggest doing that.
