    Since you are international, it could go completely in your favor or against you since some schools try to get more international student while some want less. I think you will get waitlisted to Harvard, but you have pretty good chances for the rest of the schools.

    Update -
    Received an important role at the UNESCO Global Action Programme on Education in Sustainable Development in my country
    Received research traineeship at Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, Garching
    Passed initial rounds of review to get my poetry published with Random House. Most likely to fail with the final reviews as most samples get rejected...

    @ANormalSeniorGuy Native Americans aren't "random" URMs, nor is Dartmouth's Native American connection random; it is foundational.

    You have such an impressive resume! especially your subject tests, have you taken the SAT?
    The main reason I chose reject for some of the more selective schools is because of your ACT score
    Good luck
    Chance me back?

    Thanks, @rowdyfries! Is the ACT really that bad a spoiler? Well, I took a risk not taking it again, but isn't it at least the average at these schools? Anyway, let's see what happens! I hope it turns out better than I expect it to be...
