ANSWER
I will encourage you to apply to NYU. Make sure you apply early. I think you have a shot if you apply. Why NYU? In my opinion there are better universities than NYU like Yale. But I really hope that you get in. At the moment they are no longer accepting applications according to their websites. They received over 37,000 application. Good Luck!!!!!!!!!! I really hope that you applied to other school just in case NYU does not work out for you. Good Luck!!!!!!! Also if you dont get into NYU, it is not the end of the world. I applied in HS and did not get accepted. I ended up attending a CUNY school which worked out great for me. NO student debt from college. I then went and go a PhD at a top Ivy league school. So if you dont get into NYU it is not the end of the world. I think it is an overpriced school.
