<p>Once again..I'm Asian, and I have a poor GPA...So please, feel free to chance me and tell me what my chances are at those top-notch colleges. (Harvard, Stanford, etc.) I want to have an idea of whether or not if its worth applying.</p>

<p>Hello!
before I can give u a clear advice, are you a rising junior or graduated junior?</p>

<p>I am graduating this year btw! So I'll be a senior next yr.</p>

<p>And I'm top 1%...if that's also important to know.</p>

<p>Based on your extracurriculars, I think you would be a good college candidate if U decided to major in International relations. Honestly, I do not see " you are interested in economics!" logo on ur resume. But I do see an awesome International Relations logo! </p>

<p>Yes, ur activities are too scattered, but you really submit the items that reflects ur interest in a particular major, which isnt going to be a problem. </p>

<p>Boost that SAT up! 2300+! you are almost there! and GPA! :D</p>

<p>Alrighty! Thanks! I really appreciate your advice/encouragement!</p>
