Son's Chance?

<p>Son a junior in excellent public high school in MA. Has a 4.7 weighted GPA (out of 6.0) -- have no idea how this translates on the 4.0 scale but he is a B student, having taken 3/4 of his classes at the Advanced level. Will take 3 APs next year (Bio, Stats, Latin); President of Latin Club; varsity golf and crew; few other clubs at school throughout high school and has done a bit of volunteering and will work at a law firm this summer.</p>

<p>School doesn't rank but he's in top 30% (75/260).</p>

<p>SATs: 700M, 620CR, 520W -- will take again in June. How much does the Writing section actually count?</p>

<p>Also, not applying for financial aid -- does this even matter?</p>

<p>Anyone out there with honest opinion would be most appreciated! Thanks.</p>

<p>I think he has a real good chance. My son had similar SAT scores (750M 630CR 580W) with a wt GPA at 4.24,unwt-3.25, top 10% and got in early action this year. The fact that the rigor of his course load is the hardest will help a lot.
Good luck</p>

<p>He'll get in without a hitch.</p>
