Applying to schools as a sophomore?

when you apply to schools as a sophomore, generally does it decrease or increase your chances of getting in? or is it the same?

    It's usually about the same - less spots but also less applicants for those spots.

    My experience applying as a junior was that it depends on the rate of attrition for that class. It also varies from school to school and year to year.

    Don't worry about the statistics. Picks schools that you like and apply, regardless of acceptance rates.

    For 10th grade applicants, what years of school grades are required for the application? 6th - thru 9th? surely more than just 9th first term...right?

    Usually 6/7- 9th (1st term) and then you send in your winter term grades as decisions are being made (usually you send these right after or before the application deadline) all schools are a bit different though in their requests

    Would it be a bit easier if you were waitlisted the previous year?
