You have a decent chance at Penn ED with your double legacy.

1360 isn't bad, you idiot.

It's kind of hard for anyone to tell you your chances if all you have is your "bad" SAT score, your GPA and a list of ECs.

You probably can't get into GU, Wash U, or Northwestern with those scores (assuming your other scores won't be relatively higher than your SAT 1). Good luck to you though.

Don't know about Penn because of the double legacy, but Cornell, Northwestern, Wash U, Georgetown are all far reaches. You should get your SAT's into at least the 1400 range. Your EC's also dont really jump out at me.

I'd say that Emory, NYU, and UMich are reach/match schools. You're about average for them, but admissions these days are quirky.

Rutgers stands out as your only likely school, and unless you would really like going there, I suggest you find some more likely schools.

You will definately be accepted to Rutgers and UMich. I got into both with a 1360 and a rank just barely in the Top 10%. You will probably be accepted to NYU, but maybe not if you apply to Stern. Maybe you get into 1 of your other schools if you get lucky but those are reaches. If you choose to pursue business, remember that you have to transfer into Rutgers and UMich business schools before junior year. If you want more match/safety schools with good business schools, look at the Big 10 Schools (UIUC, Indiana, Wisconsin, OSU, Penn St., etc.), Maryland, Pitt, and some others. If you want other business schools that are most likely match/reaches, look at CMU, UNC, UVA.
