Hi... I was a late applicant and most interviews are post Dec. 1. I have NYU and Columbia in December. How much of a hill do I have to climb to get acceptances with these late interviews?

Obviously I did not give any stats, so just based off the late interviews is what I am asking.

Unless you happen to be in the "special qualities" category your excitement may be premature.

what do you mean of "special qualities"? You mean being a strong candidate?

My scores are
aa/ts/pa 21/23/20
That would be one category. Let's say a particular ds does not have a single applicant with an engineering degree and come post dec here comes one with relatively decent stats. The "special qualities" could apply to whatever would complement a diversity of the accepted/enrollee group in terms of gender, race, socio economic background, educational background, age, etc. etc. etc.
