    Write a personal essay! I've seen some essays from prospies, and often, they don't talk about why they fit into the NU community.

    If you like the school visit it. If you can see yourself there apply. Don't be so worried about grades and scores. It's just one aspect of the process. NU prides itself on diversity and the people here have so many interesting backgrounds.
