Harvard 2025: Middle East & North Africa

Any Arabs applying to Harvard this year? I wonder if we’re a minority in the Ivy League… Common App lists Middle Easterners as “Caucasian.” Thoughts? Concerns? Please share!

Hi! I’m sure if it’s mentioned somewhere in the app they’ll account for ethnic diversity, despite Common App limiting us to the Caucasian category (albeit the dropdown is there).


Did you get accapted??

Anyone from Saudi Arabia get an interview??

Nope, I was deferred from the UAE. What about you?

I don’t receive an interview until now
