Count on NYU, William and Mary, and Emory as pretty much sure bets, the rest are toss ups, except for maybe Cornell and JHU, those aren't so much of a crap shoot as the others. Choose one ED or EA and your chances will skyrocket. good luck

i'm just curious. What kind of stuff do you do in the latin club??? I am thinking of starting one at my school.

Well, you see that is kind of the problem with Latin clubs, there isn't too much to do. One of the major things we did last year was to figure out activities the club should do this coming year. The things that we have done in the past are...attended and competed at Latin Day at the U of Maryland College Park.....they do Video and Costume contests that pretain to that years theme as well as a whole Latin porgram. Last year they had schools come from all over so if you live in the states surrounding Maryland or Maryland you can look into that. Also we do a lot of movie nights were we watch varies Latin movies and movies about the Roman Culture. We also celebrate all the Roman holidays and we end up having parties and stuff for them. We also do tutoring and we do a trip at the end of the year to Italy. This up coming year we are planing to visit varies museums....one in Baltimore and one in New York. We also are planing on enter a kind of Latin (knowledge) Competition with other Latin Clubs in the County. Hope that helps, but really you can do what ever you want with your club. The best thing though is probably to see what you can do in your community or state Latin wise.
