NYC: NYU, Columbia

LA: UCLA, USC, Loyola Marymount University Los Angeles

Not sure about Vancouver, but if you're applying for fall 2010, it's a little too late. The application deadlines for these unis were January, for UCLA November...I don't know about Loyola Marymount University Los Angeles.

You can get more info googling, but I think these are the top unis for NYC and LA.

Yeah, unfortunately it was... I know because I wanted to apply there...

Anyway, it's not too late. You can still apply as a transfer student at any of the unis that interest you in the US. Just make sure you achieve great results on your SATs (I and Subject Specifics) and make sure you get familiar with all the requirements needed ASAP, so you don't waste time on that later and you could get accepted.

The thing you have to know about US universities/colleges is that EACH ONE OF THEM has their own specific requirements, so be sure to get familiar with all of them and have them completed and prepared by the deadlines. Also, I'm not so sure that universities in the US really care about the IB...

I believe the SAT I and SAT Subject Specifics are the priority over there.

@Andy:

SAT is quite hard and I think it needs time to prepare and it adds burden for us, especially when we have those tasks which also need to be finished as soon as possible. However, I'll try to get some information for that, thank you!! =) So, where r u applying now..? =0

If it's Vancouver, UBC is hands down the best university - it's also consistently in the top five in Canada, and top thirty-five in the world (though things are always changing, so I don't know if its ranking has changed this year, sorry!). However, UBC is a research university. There is pretty much nothing for you at UBC if what you want to go into is the hospitality industry. For that, you would probably (if not almost definitely) need to go to a specialised academy to get a degree in hotel management. There is the Vancouver Premier College of Hotel Management that you can go to, though, and that's also supposedly a very good school. Might want to keep in mind, though, that the best schools for hotel management are most likely going to be in Europe (of course, that's somewhat arbitrary). Les Roches in Switzerland is one of the best hotel management schools in the world, for example. :S (Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, which is supposedly the best hotel management school, is also in Switzerland. Glion Institute of Higher Education is another excellent hospitality school... also in Switzerland!)

Anyway... I'm a UBC student currently, but my interest has swayed so I've been looking at schools for hotel management too. I wish I could help you out and suggest universities in New York and LA that specialise in hotel management, but I know hardly anything about the States... Hope I helped out in some way though!

Yeah, there's also Les Roches in Marbella, Costa Del Sol, Spain. That seems nice in my opinion.

@gratziela: I decided not to apply in the US for undergad for now...

In Vancouver the best known university is UBC. SFU and UVic are good school for a B average student. There are also tons of community colleges. Lol don't go to Vancouver, looks beautiful in pictures, but is really cold, rainy... think about it =S

Deadline for UBC is end of February! And SFU and Uvic I think

If you're interested in Hospitality Management, I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Cornell - probably one of the top schools in the world for that course. It's not in New York City, but it's in Ithaca, which is in New York State. It's a suburban/remote area from what I understand, so it would have quite the opposite feel of NYU. But definitely worth considering (note that it's too late to apply for this year - you'd have to apply in October for 2011 entry).

Best in Vancouver is UBC, and the best in LA are probably UCLA and USC.

As a Vancouverite, I'd have to take offense to that. :) It's only cold and rainy 8 months out of the year, and most of us tend to see that quality of our city as a rather charming one. Also, since we are next to the sea, it doesn't get that cold during the winter in comparison to places like Alberta and Ontario. If you truly want to come to Vancouver for studies, I wouldn't let the weather of the area stop you. My one complaint is that the two major universities in the area, UBC and SFU, are in somewhat remote areas - UBC has its own endowment lands to the west of the city of Vancouver, and SFU's located atop a mountain in a suburb. Unless you choose to live in residence, transportation may be a slight issue, but as a student foreign to the region, I'd assume that you'd probably want to go for residence anyways.

Thank you

There is no MINIMUM score. It all depends upon your application.

But here's a few Statistics: Average IB score is 40 and the average SAT Score is about 2000. Read here for more info regarding admission into NYU: http://collegeprowler.com/new-york-university/admissions/

Nevertheless, my friend got into NYU in Early Decision with a 38 IB score and a 1900 SAT score. His essays and extra curricular's were pretty good. So keep in mid that everything else counts as well.
