    Probably not bad! Apply anyway.

    I think you have a really good shot. You are an under-represented minority but it’s clear you’re not relying on only that to get in. You have a lot of activities and are really active in your school. Your scores are good and so are your grades. Harvard also loves IB diploma candidates. They also like first-generation students. Best of luck for the future!

  3. supermaterial says:

    Your test scores should be fine considering you have so many leadership positions. Plus, your hook of low income bracket + first generation + hispanic female will help a lot.Good luck!

    Your SAT scores are a bit low, but everything else looks really good. I’d say you have a better than average chance of getting in, but the odds are still against anyone applying to the top three Ivies. Choose your backup schools carefully — you should be able to get into many of the top schools in the country.

  5. enrichet says:

    It looks good to me. One thing I would suggest is thinking about expunging some of your minor interests to spend more time on major interests and school. This will protect you from burnout, and give the admissions officers an idea of where your interests lie. Start applying now for scholarships, because even if you get in, full scholarships are pretty much non-existent and Harvard is expensive. And of course, have at least two back up schools.
