In my first term I had 2 A's and 3 A-

I scored decently on the SSAt in the mid 80's

I competitivley play tennis and and involved with many extra curricular activities I am also a legacy at two of the schools, what do you believe my chances are thank you in advance! Also a quick question will my second term grades matter at all?

    They won't see your second term grades, but you shouldn't slack it.

    Some questions before anyone can make a wise chance:

    ~Do you require FA?
    ~Where are you from? Location and ethnicity
    ~What school do you attend? Private, public. What's your school ranking?
    ~How much of a legacy? (This one is just for me. Lately legacy doesn't count as much)
    ~What types of EC's?
    ~How did your interview go?

    1) Being a legacy does matter if you're qualified and sometimes even when you're not. I've heard of legacies not being accepted, but it's very rare. That's my short answer.

    2) Yes, schools will see your grades. If you're wait listed, some schools will request your most recent (winter term) grades. Your acceptance is also contingent on your final grades.

    Best of luck M10.
