My father's side of the family has been very generous to Harvard: many have held positions on the Boards of Trustees at several of the graduate schools, donated a surplus of money for athletic center renovations, and the like. About 12 of them have attended. My uncle has been in contact with the development office at the University to let them know that I am applying and will put in a good word for me. I am in the top 10% of my class with a 4.10 unweighted GPA. I am the head of 3 clubs, run track and cross country, studied abroad in Spain last year, and also volunteer at a local school tutoring Latin immigrants in English. My ACT is a 34, and I have 5s on the three AP exams I have taken. I have only taken so few APs because my school last year offered only 1 AP (Spanish lang) and my home school actually just got rid of the AP system this year. My worry is that my subject test scores will be of concern. I have a 690 and a 650 on the 2 I took. I am not the very best test taker, and I have had straight As in these subjects at advanced levels all throughout high school. Will this ruin my shots at admission? I know that the scores are super low, but Harvard "strongly recommends" that students submit them unless it is financially not possible. So I am assuming that it would just look worse if I did not submit them at all. I am not too thrilled about these scores and they, quite frankly, really worry me. I am a strong student, so these scores are truly an oddity.
