<p>Double legacy, mother very active in local alumni club(she does interviews) and also on nat'l law alumni board.</p>

<p>I'm also applying to FSU, UF, Tulane, Chicago, Washington U in St. Louis, and maybe one other.</p>

<p>You are in I'd say 90%, especially with the double legacy. Also, upgrade the rest of you're list, you need more reaches. Chicago and WUSTL are matches for you, and you could very likely get into Princeton, Brown, Dartmouth, Duke, Penn, etc. You might still prefer Gtown in the end, but having options like this never hurts.</p>

<p>You're in, I thought that before I saw your double legacy and your alumni connection, and being hispanic, you have a 90% chance</p>

<p>Can I assume you're not applying for sfs?</p>

<p>Your GPA is kind of low, but you have great Sats, good Ec's, legacy, and you are a minority. </p>

<p>FSU-match, but you can do better

<p>What school do you go to? I go to Coral Springs High School in Browrd. Hoping to go to Columbia. Wish you luck!!!</p>

<p>No, I'm 90% sure I'm applying for Georgetown College. I haven't taken a modern language in high school, so SFS is out, unless they count my Spanish classes in Costa Rica and Spain.</p>

<p>Jesuit High School in Tampa. Distant Cousin to Belen Jesuit in Miami. Not on speaking terms with them, though ;)</p>

<p>Normally, I wouldn't bump, but because of the volume of threads in this forum is so high, I would like more people to comment. Thanks.</p>

<p>Check w/Georgetown re SFS. I have heard conflicting interpretations of that modern foreign language requirement. I think you can apply to SFS as long as you realize you are going to take a modern foreign language in college.</p>
