<p>Are you an international applicant?</p>

<p>No, from Ohio</p>

<p>Retake the ACT and aim for 33+.</p>

<p>Most likely acceptance at Vandy and Emory</p>

<p>Ehh, ive already retaken it (29 the first time) so i dont really think my score will improve much</p>

<p>anyone else??</p>

<p>You have a good chance. If your ACT score was at least 34, I would guarantee your acceptance. </p>

<p>Good Luck</p>

<p>There is no such thing as sibling legacy.</p>

<p>Have you tried the SAT?</p>

However, some colleges give you a closer look if your siblings attended the institution.</p>

<p>Yea i thought since we both went to the same school, the family would be more likely to donate to that one school instead of two seperate ones. Idk, thats just what i thought</p>

<p>I think having a sibling there will work in your favor, but your ECs are definitely a bit weak for Wharton</p>

<p>Thank you everyone</p>

<p>If your family donates significantly, you are development which is more powerful than legacy. Schools really need money now.</p>

<p>

How much are we talking about here? couple of millions?</p>

<p>Lol look guys, my family hasnt donated a dime yet. I was just thinking that in the eyes of the admissions counselors, they may look favorably on the fact that my brother and i are going to the same school because Penn becomes the main university in the family and in the future IF our family donated, it would be to the university.</p>
