CHANCE ME at Boston College!

Hii! I a currently extremely anxious about college decisions (though they're still 2 months away). My grades are pretty bad, so are my test scores but Boston College is one of my top choices and I really want to get in. I applied to A&S school for computer science!

SAT: 1320 (700M/620RW), 18 (essay)
Grades: Average C (school doesn't do GPA), Cs looks bad but I'm above average, roughly top 30%
(my school doesn't offer AP courses)

ECs:
- House (it's a school spirit thing, all students are separated into 4 houses): Captain for 2 years
- Student Council: Spokesman of my class
- Dance team: 4 years
- Athletics team: 4 years (gotten multiple prizes)
- Junior police call: 3 years
- Joined a summer camp about sustainability and environment on a scholarship in summer 2019

1. legacy (my dad got a degree for computer science at A&S school as well)
2. international student (born and raised in Hong Kong)

recs(I didn't read any of them):
- computer teacher (taught me 3 years)
- literature teacher (taught me 3 years and knows me pretty well)
- House advisor (likes me a lot and knows how passionate I am about my house)

essays: personal essay was about my love for my House and supplement was about a novel that helped me realize I was bisexual

    With a 1320 SAT and only in the top 30% BC is a very high each, despite being a legacy. Hopefully you are applying to other schools.
