Hi everyone. As weird as this may sound, I just got an email from the Undergraduate Minority Recruitment Program (includes Asians too) and I followed up. This is what the person (A Harvard rep) told me:
"While Harvard does not have an SAT/ACT/GPA cutoff, most successful applicants score at or above a 650 on each section of the SAT or above a 29 on the ACT. Keep in mind that these are just averages."
For those who have scores around this don't give up. The more I look into it, it really doesn't matter if you have a 2100+. I mean of course a 2300 kid has a statistically better chance, but if they're boring, then its all the same.
It would be nice if you guys could confirm this or provide your view. I always thought Harvard's avg was 2250. But I guess not.
