    You have very good chances for Georgetown.

    Your very good SAT (1520, as Georgetown only does CR+M) is actually above Georgetown's Middle 50. Your GPA is good (not great), and shouldn't be much of a detriment. Make sure to do better on your essays. With all of that, you would have good chances as a standard applicant. But, you are not a standard applicant. You have two MAJOR hooks, in that you are both African-American and a first gen college student. I'd say you have excellent chances at Georgetown.

    Compared with me, u do a really great job!!! Just keep making things right and accomplish those supplements!!!

    I have a question that does Georgetown accept Chinese students in Political Science major??? Do we have the same admit rate or lower than local students in this major? Or do we need to have relatives in this field??
