It's always impossible to give a number. But your stats are delicious so just apply and cross your shoelaces. Or your fingers. Whichever you prefer.

I dunno...maybe 50-60ish? ED accpetance rate = 26%For Yale, you've got pretty avg. SATs, but your ACT is outstanding. Great AP scores. Very good ECs (but then again, Yale is a very elite school). Your legacy status could take you from being an outherwise worthy but not especially spectacular applicant (everything's relative...understand that your stats are WAY better than mine) to one to which they must give very strong consideration. Make sure you keep in contact with them throughout the process. If you do get waitlisted, make sure you/your school send them new stats when your current stats change (such as SAT). You've got a good chance. Just keep your fingers crossed ;)

Please evaluate me/give advice at "Tufts ED." Thanks.

Maybe you just posted quickly and didn't proofread--but be sure you spell "Guatemala" correctly on your apps, and "ensemble" not "ensamble"--could give you that extra edge, you never know.

My advice is to work on your essay and seek all the expert advice you can, bc your stats put you in the ballpark. Demonstrate passion about whatever activity or academic area you are strongest in.

I'd say you have just as much of a chance as anyone else in the applicant pool. Nothing really stands out about you, but I think the fact that you are a legacy will bump up your chances a bit. My only advice is to have an amazing essay.

my bad, satI verbal should be 750. Also, about a year ago I had an essay published in a book of essays about world war II. will this look good on my app?
