    Harvard's acceptance rate was under 5% this year. Your chances (and the chance for any unhooked applicant) to be accepted is small. By all means put in an application and give it your all -- but be sure to also seek out and apply to a set of match and safety schools that appear affordable (run net price calculators) and that you would be excited to attend.
