<p>reach at Yale. It depends on how strong the legacy is. How much money is coming in or likely to come in. Looks good at the others.</p>

<p>with a good essay and recs you shouldnt have any problems getting in</p>

<p>Good grades, great test scores, legacy, and underrepresented state. You have a good shot.</p>

<p>You have a great shot. fantastic ECs</p>

<p>I would say 57.4 percent.</p>

<p>Great shot at Yale. Your list of schools needs other reaches though.<br>
why not Harvard, Princeton, Stanford as other reaches and places like Columbia, Duke, Dartmouth, Brown, Penn, et al as slight reaches?</p>

<p>What is some legacy? Either a parent went ot not.</p>

<p>My legacy is pretty weak: a Grandfather and an Uncle, I only put it down because the Yale supplement asks for it. (I realize now that it won't make much of a difference... or any. :) )</p>

<p>As for more reaches, I'm not particularly interested in any other reach schools; Harvard and Princeton wouldn't be right for me. </p>

<p>I might also apply to UPenn and Columbia, no harm trying, I suppose.</p>

<p>Thanks for the feedback!</p>
