Hey Guys, I am a current junior and here are my stats:

GPA(UW):3.6
ACT:34
SAT Subject Tests:
Math II:750
US History II:760


I actually have two passions; English poetry; and as well as educating others. My activites are centered on those passions

Summer Activites:
Harvard Summer School Program
Received a Harvard University Recommendation Letter

Volunteered 160 Hours at local science center;
A summer teen docent,

IDK yet what to do for junior year summer period.

Current Extracurruclars:
Founder and President of Archery Club;
Brought back the club after it was deleted from the school's curriculum.
(11th-12th)

JSA Member, Competitior, Fundrasiing Committee
(11th-12th)

Mock Trial President
(11th-12th)

Anthology Collection,
Have done over 20 poems thus far, have even posted some on poetry forums, and am awaiting a response form the Poetry Foundation for publishing
(10th-12th)

YouTube Channel;
To help kids in my town with elementary math topics. Recent firings of teachers inspired me to lend my own helping hand through one of my passions.
(11th-12th)

With these stats, what are my chances of getting into a Harvard or Yale, or other top 25 college? What else do I need to do to increase my chances if you think it is relatively low?

Thanks a lot!!!

    Considering you have a Harvard rec letter, I would say your chances are slightly better than most. However, HPYS are a total crapshoot for absolutely everyone, so make sure to include some safeties as well! Your stats are fantastic, try to work on your GPA if your school recalculates it before the deadline!
