<p>My 2 teacher references are VERY strong...one of my teachers who I've had for the past 2 years said that I'm one of the best he's seen in his 20 yrs teaching.
I also got a reference from my Harvard Med. School Lab advisor - he got his BS, MD, and PhD at Harvard.</p>

<p>Thank you for your time~

<p>definitely apply. you have a reasonably high chance, with some luck youll get in</p>

<p>I'd say you have as much a chance as anyone. Go for it!</p>

<p>You have quite the resume there. I, not being an admissions officer, can't say your exact chances but you should DEFINITELY apply. A 2300 SAT is fantastic, extracurriculars excellent also. In particular working at the Harvard lab (and getting the recommendation) would definitely help.<br>
Your grades also look ok, although I suppose you could have taken more APs.
Best of luck!
p.s. question for you: what do you plan to major in? I don't see any overarching theme to your accomplishments...</p>

<p>WOW! um...genius much?I'm veryyy impressed! I say definitely apply! But don't necessarily get your hopes up, because you never know with these colleges these days! lol
good luck!</p>

<p>Very strong amount of community service and involvement is always helpful. Makes you seem (and you probably are) like a well-rounded person to admission officers. Go for it. Good luck!</p>
