You sound like a Berkeley prospect

UC schools require 2 years of fine arts which i dont have

You'll get into Stern without ED if you ask me. Maybe do EDII if you're worried. If I were you I would do REA at Georgetown, EA at UVA (and wherever else), and RD Stern + any other schools you want.

i only took 2 subject tests- georgetown requires 3

You don't necessarily have to do 3 subject tests. Plenty of people get into Georgetown with no subject tests.

Maybe just regular. Because if you got into Wharton, you'd have to go there.

How many schools are you applying to?

What is wrong with VT or UVA? Both a whole lot of fun and place well on Wall Street.

Paying for NYU as opposed to doing in-state for UVA seems insane to me. UVA is a very good school so only ditch it for an Ivy/Stanford/MIT.

dude just go to uva unless you're very wealthy

as someone else said, i'd only ditch uva for top ivies (not brown/cornell), chicago, stanford, and duke. maybe top nescacs like amherst/williams/middlebury too.

unless your parents have absolutely no idea what to do with $300k+, don't waste money on NYU

i'd pick UVA over NYU if financial circumstances for each were equal
