I know they're bad but I came to the point,I am a bad test taker.Can't take again.Apps are sent as well.

Good recommendation letters.There's no GPA for Indian board but my grades are not bad.The lowest I've got is B and there are more A's and A+'s.Also,in tenth grade my Main Exam CGPA was 9.6 which is the third highest in the entire school.

Honest opinion :)

I got into SUNY and Cincinnati (Don't know why that should matter)

No rude answers.Also,this is just an opinion that I want.So please help answerians! :)

    I think you have a decent chance of getting into Penn and Ohio. Not having a GPA and bad test scores might harm your chances, but it seems like you have some great credentials (although you could have used some extracurricular activities). NYU is a bit of a long shot I don't really think you'll get in, but they value creativity a lot so if you had a great essay or something you could get lucky. I have no knowledge about Syracuse sorry. Good Luck!

    Source(s): I'm currently looking for colleges too. I mainly got info from college board's website and this book "America's Top Universities"
