<p>Comments: Please chance me as you wish. There's more to me than just this.</p>

<ol>
<li>Your SAT and ACT scores are way, way, way, way too low. They are way below even the 25th percentile, so I don't see any way you could get in. Sorry. :(
Also, besides that, your grades and school prestige are hampering acceptance.</li>
</ol>

<p>Well, to tell you the truth, no chance. Your scores are very low!!! RETAKE!!!</p>

<p>You have a couple of months to get it together.</p>

<p>Your GPA and class rank are okay, and may work to your advantage.</p>

<p>However, you MUST improve your scores drastically. Practice like craaaaazy.</p>

<p>My essay should be excellent (I'm a good writer), and I have two Higher Level IB teachers, who know me very well plus I am ranked first in their classes, writing recs for me over the summer (because I told them before school was over). One of them is the adviser for Student Council, so she said that she'll try her very best include my contributions and changes to the school community. I'm also getting a rec from a neuro-psychology professor from local state university who I'm currently doing research with by summer's end.</p>

<p>Dude, where in MI are you from?</p>

<p>Lansing...</p>

<p>MSU is more ur caliber!!!!!!!!</p>

<p>Thanks...but I still like Harvard.</p>

<p>Oh ok me too.</p>

<p>Actually I LOVE it. I'm going to try and write a "Why Harvard" for my supplemental essay.</p>

<p>Ohhh what's it about??</p>

<p>Just about why I think Harvard is for me, with specific anecdotes.</p>

<p>Oh. Good idea</p>

<p>That's not all of it. Still working on it to make it unique. Alot could go wrong with it.</p>

<p>I hope things go right with it</p>

<p>Thank you.</p>

<p>Anytime!!!</p>

<p>Where are you applying (assuming you're '16).</p>

<p>I wish you good luck :)
You seem really motivated and unique.</p>
