Am I like hella screwed
So I’m gonna join the every person ever in highschool on here n ask about college stats. So like I wanted to know if it would b somewhat reasonable for me to get into Harvard REA. My ECs are smth I’m kinda happy with. I started a non-profit that raised about 25K for international education equality, and in a co founder at a nonprofit which helps provide medical equipment around the world (still kinda in the works). I did independent research about mental illness and the neurological basis of it and used it to creat policy change in three states. Im the leader of a nationally based mental health policy change campaign and we’ve gotten a few mental health bills in the making. I’m the debate captain and president. Plus I’m the regional HOSA VP (tho that kinda means nothing). Ummm. I published research in an NIH journal bout neuroscience related things (not like first name or anything lol). Plus a few other like small things. I have some international n state awards too in biology fields . BUT I kinda messed up my grades n they’re a 3.85 UW gpa and a weighted (unofficial) 4.5. I had a really severe illness from 6-11th grade which got much worse in 10th which is when I got most my B’s but 11th was all A’s btw. My sat is a 1570 and ACT is a 35. Y’all think Harvard is worth trying for or..?27 replies
