    Find what sets you apart from other students. A high GPA and SAT score will only do so much with very competitive applications. Declaring your major may also help increase your chances as it narrows down the playing field.

    I think two big things to really hone in on are your individuality and your eagerness to interact with people from all over the world (or even travel and study around the world because NYU really likes to boast about their huge study away program). While well-roundedness is good for any school I think you also need to show that you're really passionate about something. 1) Uniqueness is key, 2) NYU has been working its way towards getting more selective and more diverse.
