<p>Of course, you've a got a good chance. I assure you the responses will consist mainly of "yea you got a good standing" and a bunch of maybes. I also know that sometimes a less qualified candidate is admitted in place of a better qualified one. What is your hook?</p>

<p>Probably my drawing, music or language skills. I'm also Asian (Chinese) so i don't know how that affects my application</p>

<p>With all due respect, being in Latin 1 doesn't mean you speak Latin. I'm in Latin 2, and I don't speak anything close to comprehensible fluency. Spanish 2, again, doesn't mean you speak the language. Just being realistic.</p>

<p>I don't mean to be rude...honestly. I just don't think that you can really "speak" the language after only a couple years of instruction :)</p>

<p>thanks for being honest :) and i can understand your standing about speaking latin.. you cant really talk to anybody in latin can you? and about the spanish, i feel like i can understand what people are saying when theyre speaking spanish, but i dont really know what to say back, so its just this huge awkward communication thing.. but really, thanks for being honest :)</p>

<p>Haha! No, speaking Latin is pretty hard...it's such an awkward language! And I totally get the understanding a language but not being able to speak it back...don't worry about it :)</p>

<p>thanks :) im just so nervous about if I'll get in and such etc. etc.</p>

<p>anyone else?</p>

<p>I'm applying too, very worried as well... good luck</p>

<p>ditto thanks :)</p>
