I highly disagree with all above.
How to REALLY get into Harvard? You need to stand out, you need to do something other CAN'T DO. Life is unfair, who told you it is? Here's the only way that ensures your spot @ Harvard or any top universities in the world
HAVE A GREAT FAMILY! SIMPLE AS THAT!
Be one of the Bush family, be one of the Kennedy family, be one of the Clinton family, be one of the Romney family, be a part of the Pratt family or,
Have a retard dad like Donald Trump, have a dad like Rupert Murdoch or,
be a successful actress (who also score 2300 on her SAT) like Natalie Hershlag, Emma Watson... I can go on and on...
Now, only the above things can truly easily get you into Harvard. If you can't get the above things done, I'd say you have a great chance into Harvard. Harvard consists many regular kids, who is just plain lucky to get in (they have the same resume as anyone else and aren't special, just lucky. I'd say at least 80% of them might not get in if they apply again)
The requirement for admission to Harvard had changed greatly, you would see more super kid than you expect in the future.
