Alright, so both of my parents and both of my brothers attended Harvard. How much will this help my chances of getting accepted? I plan on applying EA in a year in a half.

The more qualified you are, the more attractive legacy status looks to the College.

I think it will help a lot. If you have competitive stats, you probably have a 75% chance.

Yeah, the academics are definitely there and the EC's are pretty good, but this is only through sophomore year. I was considering listing academics and EC's but without the PSAT, SAT I and only one SAT II it would be too hard to give me an accurate guess as to my chances.

Note that Harvard give less weight to legacies than all the other Ivy League unibersities.
