Find Out Your Chances of Admission at New York University
NYU ranks among the most selective colleges in the U.S. But every year thousands of talented applicants are accepted… could you be one of them? If you’re curious about your chances of admission at NYU and other top colleges, Go4Ivy can help by calculating your highly-accurate, guaranteed chances of admission.
I corresponded with you in June concerning my son’s chances of being admitted to Stanford or to another elite school. Your firm’s estimate for a positive decision from Stanford was 70%, while I thought it must be much less (in the 20%) range. Well, my son was admitted through Stanford’s early action program. Naturally, he is excited about the decision! So, it certainly looks like your estimate was spot on. By the way, he did use your estimates to decide where to apply early. Among the most elite schools, your estimate was highest for Stanford. So, to maximize his chance of being accepted by at least one of these schools, he used his early action choice on Stanford. Thank you for your assistance.”
The History of New York University
One hundred and seventy five years ago, Albert Gallatin, the distinguished statesman who served as secretary of the treasury under President Thomas Jefferson, declared his intention to establish “in this immense and fast-growing city … a system of rational and practical education fitting for all and graciously open to all.”
At that time, 1831, most students in American colleges and universities were members of the privileged classes. Albert Gallatin and the University’s founding fathers planned NYU as a center of higher learning that would be open to all, regardless of national origin, religious beliefs, or social background.
While the University’s commitment to these ideals remains unchanged, in many ways Albert Gallatin would scarcely recognize NYU today. From a student body of 158, enrollment has grown to nearly 40,000 students attending 14 schools and colleges at six different locations in Manhattan and in over 20 study-abroad countries around the world. Students come from many foreign countries. The faculty, which initially consisted of 14 professors (among them artist and inventor Samuel F. B. Morse), now totals over 3,100 full-time members.
