    No APUSH taken?

    And the only History related AP scores are 3’s. Asian who is interested in History applying to an Ivy is a semi-hook but the scores don’t show it.

    Regular decision would be a real reach, but your EC's might get you in if you apply ED. Too bad there is no archery team, but it is still unique that you excel in that.
    I don't think you will get in but it's not outrageous for you to try if you really want it.

    I did notice the 5 in AP World, but potential History majors will have taken both Euro and USH and gotten 5’s on the AP tests.
