<p>Well, you're definitely a good candidate, but I think you already knew that. The only issue I can see is your SAT score and lack of national level achievements. All in all, it will be a crapshoot, but you stand a chance. Good Luck!</p>

<p>Middlebury - Mid Reach
Bowdoin - Don't know anything about, sorry
Williams - High Reach
Dartmouth - High Reach
They all seem like reaches but I think you have a chance as long as you have strong essays/recs</p>

<p>Please chance back: <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1259877-chance-me-please-i-will-chance-back.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1259877-chance-me-please-i-will-chance-back.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>You stand a great chance at Dartmouth. Just realize that the ivies are unpredictable for everyone. So while you have a chance, no one is by any means 100% a "shoo-in." </p>

<p>For the other schools (but I haven't researched Bowdoin), I think they're a slight reach as well but you still have an excellent chance at all of them. You stand a better chance at those than Dartmouth probably but still a good candidate for any one of those schools :) Best of luck to you!</p>

<p>Please help me too: <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1260515-chance-senior-georgetown.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1260515-chance-senior-georgetown.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>thanks for the responses! </p>

<p>how much will a Dartmouth legacy help me? My dad is an active alum</p>

<p>the legacy will get you in. easily. i say 95% chance you're in</p>

<p>I think you're getting truly bad advice here. The 630 CR will all but definitely keep you out of Dartmouth. They reject over 75% of legacies and those accepted are generally solidly in range on every front. Your AP scores will hurt too.</p>

<p>Williams is also highly unlikely, Midd a significant reach, maybe Bowdoin.</p>

<p>I disagree. I had a friend who got in with a 620 CR. Given.. they were an URM. But I wouldn't discourage the OP from applying because Dartmouth is holistic, and other parts of the app can make up for a sub-par SAT. I think CC'ers put overemphasis on SAT. I have been told numerous times by admissions officers that they do not matter as much as one would think.</p>

<p>JW, get a grip on what it takes, you're giving unbelievably bad advice all over these boards.</p>

<p>I disagree that your SAT score is a weakness. Your CR is below avg, but 2200 overall is a great score. Your legacy status is also a great hook. I think you have a good shot. (60-70%?). Good luck!</p>
