Chance me at Harvard?

<p>Hey all - Just trying to see if I have any chance at getting into Harvard at all. What do you think?</p>

<p>ACT: 34 (didn't take SAT 1s)
SAT IIs: US Hist: 710 Lit: 760 Math 2: 740</p>

<p>I go to a prestigious east coast boarding school with a messed up grading scale, but my grades are probably in the 3.8 range (unscaled - we dont scale grades). Top 20% of class, Honor Roll</p>

<p>Extracurriculars: Dorm Proctor (like an RA), Peer Tutor, Big into Environmental Activism, Varsity soccer 4 years - varsity captain sr year, lots of community service for all four years, athletic advisory board</p>

<p>Jobs: Camp Counselor for 10 weeks in the Summer</p>

<p>Also, I'm from a midwestern state that doesn't send kids to boarding schools/ ivies very often.</p>

<p>Are you a junior?
You need to beef up your resume. Top 20 percent and honor roll are not stand out achievements. You probably need about a dozen extracurriculars.</p>

<p>Absolutely not. Even one exceptional one should suffice.</p>

<p>^that. one or two is better than 12.</p>

<p>yeah, your resume is weak for Harvard. The ACT score is excellent, but then it sort of stops there. Harvard is looking for more than just good test scores...</p>
