I´ve been reading this forum for over a week and according to many posts, getting accepted in Harvard is practically impossible without taking AP courses. I´m from Spain and here we don´t have the possibility to choose what courses to take, which means that there´s a standard program for everyone until the end o 12th grade. I would really appreciate it if you could tell me what are my chances to get in and how I can improve my application form. I´m still a junior, so I have plenty time to take into consideration your advice.
GRADES:
GPA: 4.0 ( I am expecting a graduation with honours in every subject, which is called Matrícula de Honor in Spain )
SAT: 2250
Languages: Fluent in Spanish, French and English. Proficient in Portuguese currently studying Italian.
EXTRACURRICULARS:
Captain of my school´s soccer time since 2008.
I run marathons.
Community service: Child care every week
Part-time office work to save up and pay university.
I´ve also been in 5 different schools around the world ( I guess this gives a little experience )

My teacher and counselor´s recommendations are probably going to be amazing cause they like me and appreciate my hard work.
I´m pretty good at writing essays and at expressing myself.
THANK YOU!!!!
