Will this hurt?

<p>I'm from a very competitive school but my school is not a feeder for Harvard. My weighted rank is in the top 2% but there are a few people who are applying with a higher class rank. Will these people's ranks relative to mine hurt my chances?</p>

<p>harvard values ECs more than any other school, and they are going to compare you to the rest of their applicant pool, not just the kids from your school.</p>
