    Try new things in high school, have a good GPA & SAT/ACT score, take part in clubs/activities/volunteer work, and do your research. You don't want to commit to a pricey school like here unless you are SURE you want to be here.

    My main tip is to be proactive in your application process. Should you be accepted, proactivity is one of the most important things you should carry over from your high school career and your application process.

    It is important to understand that NYU does not have a campus and is deeply embedded in the urban culture, which can turn some people off. I would suggest you to take a trip down to NYC and explore the area before making a decision. I know some people who are entranced at the thought of living in the city, but get incredibly stressed out when they are suddenly lost in the middle of the city. Also please note that NYU does not have a close-knit community as a whole, so it is very important to search out your own group of friends from clubs, classes, work and volunteer services (if you choose so).

    be true to yourself. understand who you are, where you coming from, and what you are hear to do. don't try to change who you are to fit in. not everyone is going to like you. don't think your a king or queen of you room, floor, class, school, or what ever. you're just another student. you not greater or lesser then nobody here.
