<p>I can't say I know how much being Hispanic will help you... but your stats seem okay but not all that impressive. Do you have any awards & achievements you could list? Have you done anything as far as extracurriculars are concerned?</p>

<p>I'd say right now Harvard is a big reach... for the typical applicant, race out of the question. I'm not sure being an URM can make up for virtually no ECs or awards.</p>

<p>Some other things I've done are MESA (robotics) and being member of some other clubs.</p>

<p>The only awards I've won are the college board ap scholar award and some meaningless school awards (high honor roll, etc.).</p>


<p>I thought Ivy Leagues welcomed non-whites more than whites b/c of diversity issues</p>

<p>Cool, my rank went up to 6</p>
