Chances for a Double Legacy?
(Cross-posted in Chances board)
I'm applying for Stanford EA in the fall. Here are my stats:
White male from New England.
U.S. History: 740
World History: 720
GPA: 3.9/4.0--I don't know my weighted GPA
Rank: 9/97 at a small Catholic school that's decent but not great
My grades are really good in the classes that I'm interested in, like English and history and languages, but I SUCK at math. My girlfriend tutors me and I manage to get high Bs, but that's what pulls my rank and GPA down.
Basketball: This is really important to me. Four years Varsity on a pretty good team, but I'm nowhere near good enough to play for Stanford. I've been the head coach (unpaid) of a kids' team in the summer for the past three years. I was also the assistant coach of an elementary school team in the winter last year, and I plan to do the same this year. I have some awards, like MVP last year and some all-league honors.
NHS: I'll be the treasurer next year. Not a big deal.
Community Service Corps: member for four years
Should be pretty good. My teachers really like me. One of my recs will be from a teacher whose class had a lot of discussion and debate. I always participated a lot.
I'm a double legacy. So that helps.
My family is pretty well-off.
My potential majors are English and history.
So, how are my chances? Does Stanford weigh legacies heavily? Any input would be great.
