<p>Please comment on what you think about my chances. I am just curious. I am perfectly aware that i am not without flaws, I have several Bs on my record. the courses at my school are hard, especially since I am a training figure skater. I am, however, involved in many extra curricular activites. My weighted GPA is about a 3.9.</p>
<p>I have not taken the SAT yet, but I expect to get around 1900/2400 (based on my scores from the practice SATs I took. I will take more AP classes next year. My school does not have a lot of AP classes, maybe 4 or 5? I was also nominated to be in the National Student Leadership Conference in 2005. </p>
<p>Whether or not this helps my chances: I am vietnamese, I speak vietnamese and english. I wonder if vietnamese people are considered a minority? My mom escaped the country during WW2. My aunt and uncle attended Harvard and graduated about 2 years ago. But I guess since they're not my parents or anything, just relatives, that's not a strong enough alumni relationship.</p>
