<p>it looks great. i think you have a good shot</p>

<p>really? sounds good. emory's definitely up there on my list. anybody else?</p>

<p>Great chance. My son applied EDII and is in. He showed lots of interest on top of grades, scores OK - within what is needed. They like the whole person. Essays that show you want the school - good communty service, ecs. Took the highest courses offered at his small school. I think the fact that he was named PA Heisman top ten male finalist - we couldn't believe it - athlete/scholar/community service award helped. As did ED II. He visited in December and loved it - reflected in the essay.</p>

<p>yeah, bud, you're good to go.</p>

<p>assuming you wrote adequate essays, Esquared is right....</p>

<p>ED you are in-- Regular w/ solid essays you have a very good chance</p>

<p>yeah, good essays are important</p>
