Is Questbridge worth applying too?

For me, specifically.

I'm Asian-American, family of five kids, have moved eight times in seven years (including a move to China). My older sibling is currently a freshman in college. I have zero money for college (no savings), so I'm depending on scholarships.

I've taken 8 APs so far, sophomore+junior year (all 4s and 5s), SAT score 2200+.

The problem is, my household income is around 67k, and both my parents have grad school degrees.

Do you think I have any chance at becoming a finalist?

Thanks in advance.

    Yes. Your parents' graduate degrees won't kill your chances and $67k in a family of 5 kids with one in college is not too much income. You may be expected to have slightly better stats than a student who is a first-generation college applicant with lower income, but your high SAT and 8 APs should be plenty to get you accepted as a finalist.
