Hi everyone, I am a Canadian citizen who went to York University in Toronto. I am considering applying to NYU and other schools in New York. Unfortunately, due to my husband's career, New York and Toronto are the only cities where we can live, so I cannot apply to less selective schools in worse locations. However, I have some problems with my academic record and so I am hoping that someone can advise me on whether I have a chance at NYU or possibly other New York schools such as Einstein. Undergrad GPA Year 1: 2.86 Year 2: 3.98 3: 3.98 4:3.98 Grad GPA (master's):3.96 MCAT: 9 P/12 V/10B I have one article submitted for publication, several major graduate scholarships and about 350 hours of volunteer work. However, I do not know if it is worth applying because of my low MCAT and my low first year GPA. The only physics and chemistry courses I took were in first year and I did very, very poorly (ie. around 50-60%). What does everyone think? Should I save my money and not apply?
