<p>Thanks in advance!!:p</p>

<p>I think you have a decent chance, the only thing that you might want to do is try to raise your lit score and SAT score.</p>

<p>wow...those stats are amazing. i'd be surprised if they reject you.</p>

<p>what school do you go to, if you don't mind sharing?</p>

<p>Those awards and ECs are impressive, but the ranking of 10/400 is not. How many others from you school are applying to Harvard and Yale? Because if those others (1-9) apply and are accepted, your chances are essentially zero. Otherwise you have an okay chance. Everyone is a reach at Harvard, so to give you a better perspective, let me give a percentage:</p>

<p>The average applicant's chances at Harvard: 8% or so.
Your chances at Harvard: Around 32%</p>

<p>So, as you can see I don't expect you to get in, but I rank your chances at four times better than the average applicant. Give it a try and good luck to you.</p>

<p>P.S. Harvard rejected 3 out of 4 students who applied last year who were valedictorians of their class. (meaning they were first or tied for first in their class ranking).</p>

<p>hey,letmepass,i am from China;)
and Calcruzer...we only have 400 people in our grade,and the top 15 students at our class are also the most excellent ones in our district...:( very few people at my school apply for colleges in america .</p>

<p>Thank you guys:p</p>

<p>You have a good chance but not a sure one.</p>

<p>thanks,wrathofachilles.Any suggestions???</p>

<p>Just write a good essay and make sure that you get good recs. Also, you shoud prob take another SAT II since you have 2 math ones.</p>

<p>Also, where are you considering applying besides Harvard? Do you have any idea as to what you want to study?</p>

<p>You're the conductor of your school's orchestra?</p>

<p>That's not that rare. A kid from my school a few years ago was the conductor of our school's orchestra as well as a music prodigy. He's at Yale.</p>

<p>Music prodigies are rare. I dunno... that's just def. not how it works at any school I know no matter how good you are. But maybe that's just here...</p>

<p>I'd say a rank of 10 out of 400 is impressive. That's top 3%. They're not going to immediately disqualify the poster just because #7 applied too.</p>

<p>Take out the fluff for your own sake. You are a strong applicant without them.</p>
