Default Sending to BGS for first time

Been collecting for about a year now and want to get some cards graded just had a couple questions and would appreciate any responses. I am probably going to send in 6-10 cards. so my main questions are.

1.What do you look at to think the card will get a good grade is it pretty much centering and corners and surface?

2. Do you package the cards in top loaders?

3. I have read on here about giving a min grade of like a 9 or dont grade at all but do not see a spot to request that on the order form, do you hand write a note.
Thanks

Put the cards in card savers. They do not like top loaders and make sure the card is centered well. The rest is pretty much a crap shoot unless it is obvious.

Untrue. They are fine with top loaders.
