At the end of this quarter, I'm leaving my current college, Savannah College of Art and Design, as I hated my major (architecture,) the students (man, art students are annoying,) and classes (all of them lasted 2.5 hours, and were exceedingly boring/easy.) At one point, in the pits of despair, I was going to drop out of college completely, as I couldn't stand it. However, recently, my college fire has been rekindled. I've always wanted to go to New York University, and decided I need to do it. I want to major in finance. The only problem is I'm not sure they'll accept me. In highschool, society tries to drill into your head that you'll never get into any good school, unless you're the best of the best. According to NYU's website, I qualify. I have a 3.4 GPA after a year and a quarter in college, but I do have one C (calculator sabeautaged me during exam.) Is that good enough to get into a first tier college? My SAT score fits within their average range, I have plenty of volunteer and work experience. I'm stressing about all this. Anyone have tips? Knowledge on college admissions? Connections to NYU?
