<p>-anticipating great recs from English and History teachers
-good rec from head of volunteers at the retirement home
-good counselor rec
-will have great essay</p>

<p>Legacies: Uncle graduated from Johns Hopkins Phi Beta Kappa with honors and went on to Harvard Law...he is still involved with many alumni things.
Cousin graduated GW in 2001 and is also very involved (she conducts student interviews on the West Coast).</p>

<p>For the BU summer program I earned B+ in both classes (Intro to Poli Sci and Religion and Culture)...with BU's notorious grade deflation I'd say this would look good for my application.</p>

<p>Overall, what are my chances for BU, GW, American, Johns Hopkins, Brown, and Northwestern?</p>


<p>BU: Match/Low Match
GW: Match/High Match
American: Dunno
JHU: Reach
Brown: Reach
