<p>Match without a legacy, but in your case, high match. Good luck!</p>

<p>Thanks! I hope it turns out that way!</p>

<p>Georgetown has somewhat eccentric admissions, but as a legacy, I'd say you're pretty close to in. I would retake Lit and your SAT, however.</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>In what ways are they eccentric?</p>

<p>UR state, great GPA, solid ECs, good scores (your SAT is relying on that W to make it look impressive...get the CR and M up), and LEGACY.
They do have sporadic admissions, but I could say you have a very, VERY, good shot at getting in.</p>

<p>Chance me back?

<p>Thanks, I'll chance back.</p>

<p>That CR is rough man.</p>

<p>Yeah, but oh well. It's the vocab that kills me, and I'm not really wanting to spend time this summer studying vocab.</p>

60%</p>

<p>Looks like a solid match. :)</p>

<p>Though I'd bump the SAT score up a bit (try to break 700 in all the sections).</p>

<p>Thanks for the replies.</p>
