1.) does me not being in a private school but instead a really good public school help me whatsoever? As in by not being in private would it be harder to enter in a good school?

2.) I've had a rough freshman year due to personal issues and have gotten c+/b- in my honors and b/b- in my acp will I never be able to get into an ivy? Note: I'm not stupid and over the next 3 years I will get better...

3.) I am Spanish of 1st generation... Does this help me?

4.) I live in a rich town like really rich but after my parents divorce I live with my mom in a not so rich part of this town... And when I get to college I would need financial aid.... Would beig part of this rich town(soley on thier amazing shools) drag me down?

5.) my dad has money but my mom dosent an I'm pretty sure he won't help with college would his income affect me getting a scholarship??

6.) how can I get into an ivy after such a rough freshman year start because I know I'm smart and I have many extra curriculars and know 3.5 languages but sports are not my thing... What can I do??
