What about the lack of SAT II's? How much will that hurt my chances for both schools?

Sheesh, see... all i can advice is dont really judge urself by what you hear here,... no offence to anyone who has replied, cuz that seems fine...but many of these guys (potential) repliers are just plain discouraging cuz they want to be so. Dont bother too much. Look at those scattergrams mentioned under one of the posts... from a winston churchill site...i think its mentioned under
"Want admission stats? A REALLY COOL website!!"
its damn good and will give u an idea. Dont bother otherwise. just apply and hope for the best. best of luck!

You have a very good chance @ USC. Stanford I would say about an 80% chance considering the legacy.
