I am a IB Diploma Candidate at Magnolia West High School, let's say I don't achieve the IB diploma. How will that affect my acceptance rates ?

It depends... In some cases, it does not make a big difference if you do not have an IB diploma. The IB program is often regarded as one of the hardest classes you can take, even harder than AP. So, as long as you have acceptable grades depending on the tier of the colleges, you should be fine. However, admissions to the top universities may be more difficult. Again, it is different for every case, so one size does not fit all.
