<p>student B will get in</p>

<p>Lemme just correct a few of this....misguided....information about the two students. First, both of them are JV XC runners for all 4 years.....or at least at that level. Seniors all get varsity letters for XC no matter how well they ran. Second, Applicant B is closer to 5'8 or 5'9, but certainly not more than 5'10. In addition, he took AP Lang, not AP Lit. He might also be taking AP Spanish. And lastly, Applicant B has more extracurriculars. He volunteers for his church a lot. His family is rich, so he probably doesn't need financial aid either (which does help in this economy). OK, just trying to give all the correct and full facts to ppl who are chancing on this forum. And btw, Applicant A has my confidence for acceptance ;)</p>

<p>Applicant A has an astromically better chance than B</p>
