<p>but perhaps someone could help me out here as well. I find out in a week from Harvard and I'm nervous. I actually want all you brutally honest people to respond to my stats because I personally appreciate it when people give me honest feedback. It's constructive for the most part.</p>
<p>anyway, here are my stats. You guys seem to know the routine.</p>
State: Illinois (Chicago)</p>
SAT I: 2100 composite
Math II: 730
Math I: 690

<p>Currently enrolled in A.P. Psych, A.P. Chinese, College Bridge Multivariable Calculus, A.P. Physics C, Speech and Debate, Lifetime activities, Computer Science: Java programming. I ran out of a lot of classes to take, and I prefer living an active lifestyle hence the P.E. class I'm enrolled in.</p>
<p>I have always taken the most challenging course load possible.</p>
<p>GPA (weighted): 5.11
GPA (unweighted): 3.97
Although my school doesn't technically rank I did go look it up- 5/290
-also I don't know if Harvard looks at high schools in a more specific manner but the one I attend is ranked 1st in the state. Only honors and A.P. classes are offered (except P.E. classes).</p>

<p>teacher and counselor recs I am assuming were good. I read one teacher rec and it was very eloquently written so I'm hoping that helps.</p>
<p>interview was about an hour, I ended up talking about my interviewers favorite book and then she lapsed into a rant about Drew Faust and how Radcliffe college no longer exists. It was an interesting interview to say the least.</p>
<p>I know the SAT test scores are super weak by Harvard standards but my transcript is very impressive. Stanford flat out rejected me so I think that's why I am so nervous, esp. with the talented pool of students applying this year. I know its a crapshoot, but if any of you senior members out there could be brutally honest with me I would appreciate it.</p>
