Chances of acceptance?

edited January 2011 in Mount Holyoke College
I am applying regular decision to Mount Holyoke. If accepted I will be part of the third generation in my family to attend. Several members of my family were less than pleased that I did not apply ED. I chose not to apply ED because I knew I would have hard time committing to one school. Does anyone have any insight as to how triple legacy may effect my application?

Additional Info:
My family have been long time donors of Mount Holyoke.
My grades are probably a bit under the average. I have a 3.5 weighted GPA with several honors courses. (my school does not offer AP's)
My EC list is not extensive, but I do have a few EC's that I am very passionate about and have participated in for all of high school.

    I bet you could get in, if you wrote great essays and had good letters of rec I'm guessing you have a pretty good shot. I'm applying to Mount Holyoke as well!
