A:Your SATs look good. Would you mind posting why you didn't finish high school and why they say they won't give you your transcript? If you have a good reason for not finishing high school and gettind your GED I'd say you are competitive for every school you listed (although some like Goddard I'd never heard of, so I'm doing some assuming there). You can definitely get into Cal Arts. All they really look at over there is your portfolio. I think you should be able to get into Evergreen and Texas as well... not too sure about the rest. For NYU, whether you'll be admitted depends on your grades
