How high of an SAT score for Harvard? Is race a factor?

<p>I have a SAT score of 2340 (760W/800CR/780M). I know this is above the average for successful Harvard applicants, but does this change if race (I'm an Asian male) is considered? I've heard that race can be equivalent to 100 points lower on the SAT.</p>

<p>I know SAT score is not the only factor, but does my score put me on par with other successful applicants (who are Asians).</p>


<p>A 2340 is definitely fine for Harvard... No need to retake; instead, focus on writing amazing essays. </p>

<p>Good luck and relax! a 2340 is on par with everyone else.</p>

<p>I agree with LesleyCordero. Unfortunately, the score is only decent for an Asian applying to Harvard, so focus on writing essays - Asians can match your test score, but they can't match your personality.</p>
