Chance me Emory EDII

Hello world. After perusing the plentiful discussions about schools I’ve applied to, I’ve decided that it’s time to have myself evaluated; this could be for the better or for the worse. Anyway, here goes nothing:
~Stats~
SAT: 1400 (730 Math; 670 English (I know))
GPA (unweighted): 3.97
GPA (weighted): not too sure but it’s around 4.4 I think...
Rank: 19/550
AP Scores: Gov (4)
Senior Courses: AP Chem (96), AP Bio (95), German V (100), DE English (97). Next semester is just honors classes + AP Micro
SAT II: n/a

~other info~
Gender: male (white)
Income bracket: <75k. FAFSA for the winnnnn. I want to detail that I couldn’t afford more ap tests or sat subject tests, so hopefully they’ll view finances as an extenuating circumstance.
Personal Essay: 10/10. I think the essay really showcased my passions for language in a fun and effective way.
Supps: 8-9/10. The writing itself is strong, but limited in its rather low word limit. I’d still say it’s creative and unique, though.

EC:
-Varsity XC
-Varsity Track
-German, Chinese, and Spanish club
-Part-time job: I wrote that having worked late the night before my sat affected my reading comprehension. This job really gave me the money I needed and thus I did not get my shift covered.
-NHS (a staple for sure)
-Boy Scouts (Eagle w/palms)

All in all, I’m no outstanding applicant. I attribute some of my shortcomings to my rough family life, which for the longest time constrained my intrinsic desire for academic excellence. I really think getting into Emory would give me the opportunity to rise above my toxic environment and set aloft my potential. Please let me know what you think!

Also, I applied to Duke ED and plan on applying to UNC, UVA, and Cornell. Chances on these would be incredibly helpful as well.

Thank y’all

    EDII is impossible to chance. You'll have to wait and see what happens. My son's best friend couldn't have been closer to what Emory looks for and was rejected. Just hope for the best!
