    In a usual year, I would say chances are 90-100%, but this year I'll say 70%-80% because your unweighted GPA may be a little low. However, your SAT is within the middle 50 of admitted students from previous years and your ECs are great. The IB program + the school you attended should help some. If you took IBHLs or APs before this year and did well on the exams, make sure to send the scores.

    How is that defined? I'm sure your school has alumni at Emory? You have a database of their stats?

    The GPA and class rank worry me. But if you can compare it to others from your school who ended up at Emory....

    If I had to pick a number, I'd put you at 50% but much higher if your school feeds into Emory.
