I have been dreaming of going to Harvard for years, particularly for their environmental public policy strain of studies. Here are my stats as of the beginning of junior year:
ACT: 35 composite
SAT2: 760 Bio (planning to take math 2 and chem and not submit the bio one)
Class Rank: 2 (trying to get that up)
Extracurriculars: Research at UC Berkeley analyzing the correlation of socioeconomic status and environmental air pollution factors (hoping to get published soon), currently writing literary review on research concerning the correlation between air pollution and suicide rates, Girl Scout bronze and silver award (shooting to finish Gold award this year), varsity swimmer, applying to go to Greenland this summer for a polar environmental field study program, special olympics volunteering, job at air and space museum, job coaching, finishing a course era epidemiology course, and did an online internship for sustainable energy at generation180.
Can someone please tell me if I'm on the right track? I know ivies are a whole new world in terms of college apps, but Harvard's public policy program is something that I think I would really be interested in and love.
