Thanks for your time!</p>

<p>Cornell (Early Decision chances)- Low to Mid-Reach
Johns Hopkins- Low Reach
Princeton (Alumni connections, not parents but family friends)- High Reach
Dartmouth- Mid to High Reach
UT Austin- Match
Boston College- High Match
Naval Academy- Not sure</p>

<p>Family/friend alumni connections won't give you any advantage in the admissions process at Princeton. Yale is a high reach. Ivies are pretty much reaches for everyone. If you get a 2200+ on your SAT, Boston College becomes a match and Johns Hopkins becomes a high match. Ivies still will be reaches. Knowing your intended major would also be somewhat helpful.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Cornell (Early Decision chances) - Low Reach
Johns Hopkins - Low Reach
Princeton (Alumni connections, not parents but family friends) - High Reach
Dartmouth - Reach
UT Austin - Match
Boston College - Match
Naval Academy - Match</p>

<p>You have a good chance to all the schools. Scores are good and ECs are great. Keep up the good work.</p>

<p>210 is not a national merit semifinalist score in Texas. </p>

<p>All ivies are reaches for everyone. Others are a possibility. Naval academy is even more exclusive than the ivies?</p>

<p>Cornell- Random so I would say Deferred and then Rejection/Maybe Waitlist
Johns Hopkins- Rejection/Maybe Waitlist- I think Rejected
Dartmouth- Rejection, slight chance of a Waitlist
UT Austin- Accepted
Boston College- Accepted
Naval Academy- Rejection</p>
