Native American and African American Applicant (Mixed) Chances

<p>Hi guys,</p>

<p>I'm a Native American and African American applying for Harvard EA.</p>

<p>I know I wouldn't have any chance at ALL if I wasn't an URM, but I know that diversity is important for Harvard so I took a chance. I know I probably have a big change of being rejected or deferred but I guess I just wanted to test the waters, and just get past all the craziness.</p>

<p>SAT: 2040 (Superscored)
690- CR
720- Writing</p>

<p>GPA 3.78 UW/4.06 W</p>

<p>APs and Honors : AP French (4), AP English lang (4), AP Psych (4) (self-study), AP European History (3) (self-study), AP Chem (3), Honors Pre-calc, Honors English 10, French 5, Spanish 5, AP Spanish, AP Gov, AP Econ, AP lit </p>


<p>Water for Sudan Volunteer (200 Hours)
Theater Conservatory( 2 lead roles)
Founder, President of Entertainment company Humans of CCA
Founder, President of French Club
Officer of ECO Club
Admin for Beatiful People of San Diego
Professional Portuguese-English Translator</p>

<p>Hooks: URM Speak English, Portuguese, Italian and French, Spanish </p>

<p>really? no one?</p>

<p>I believe it will depend upon your recommendations, your interview, your essays etc. With no offense intended your URM status is likely a consideration but will not supersede other important elements of your application. Can you paint a compelling picture of who you are through the portions of the application process I made mention of?
Of course I say go for it and wish you the best of luck!</p>

Did you get in?

@GreatKid I agree about the URM thing. You still have to be qualified to go to Harvard. I’m black, but I’m not banking on getting into Harvard just because of my skin color. I don’t want that to be the reason I got in. I think that you’re SAT score should be just a little bit higher for Harvard, like a 2100 at the least. You’re GPA is fine, but your ECs are ordinary.

But now it’s Febuary - so did you get in?

@ilovethecity @0br0123 – just check the OP’s posting history. He/She was deferred and hasn’t visited CC since then.
