Chance me for this university please. =) (French applicant)
I’m currently a French student in a little town somewhere in the center of France.
I’d like to know my chances to get into Harvard and also, if I can do anything that could help. It’s very difficult to do extracurricular or other things in France so…

General average: 19.2/20

Not a lot of awards in France but well…
Congratulations at all my trimesters and the best marks since my born.

About the 2600 I think that I've mixed both the old SAT and the new. x)
For tongchen1226, 2006 : èr qiān liù bǎi (二千六百).
Seriously as I've answered above, I don't know why I've written 2600.
I've made my first SAT Math at the age of 12 (for the fun) and it was very easy.
Well, see ya. =P
