Support from a coach/LL/what are my chances?

<p>So I pretty much want to know, how certain can I be that I will be receiving a likely letter from Yale? So I've been recruited to run track and cross country at Yale, and I went on my official visit a little over two weeks ago. Pretty much I was told by the coach that she had "2 spots left and about 6 girls that they were really looking at". I just got a call yesterday from the coach telling me that she had great news, that they are going to support my application, etc. She told me about the process and that what I needed to do was send her an "athletic resume" (like with all my league/school/district records and my accomplishments) so she could attach a letter of recommendation to my application. Then she said that my app was being pulled and that it is currently being looked at right now and that admissions will look at it and if it's good I should know by the end of this week or beginning of next. At that point, a likely letter would be sent out. </p>

<p>I guess what I'm trying to ask is, what's the chance that admissions will say no even though the coach "supports" me? Is this a legitimate support? I loved it at Yale and I loved the team and would be ecstatic if I could go, but I don't want to get my hopes up just to find out admissions says no on Friday or Monday. I literally just thought about this, and I was going to email or call the coach asking this question, but it's late now so I can't really call, and I'm just wondering if anyone would have an answer. I've looked through past threads about people saying they got "support from a coach" but then people commented that it pretty much meant nothing, so I've just been wondering if that's me... </p>

<p>Sorry if this is hard to understand, I'm pretty tired and I'm on my phone so I'm not really looking for grammatical errors. </p>

<p>Well coach gets to support two spots – one of which she said is now going to be yours. Unless what you submit is terrible, I’d say get ready for New Haven this August! Congrats!</p>

<p>Based on the fact that you were offered an OV you can assume that admissions has already looked at your academics and gave you a green light… From your wording it seems the coach is offering you a guaranteed slot (LL) and not some vague support. If your essays and recommendations are ok - you are in. </p>
