How I Got Into Harvard: My STATS! (SAT, GPA, AP)
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
It's a Harvard, Cornell and a few other schools that includes my G p a in Transcript s A. T and s 82 scores. Let's get the first part just to give you guys some context on my school. I'm in order to get into one of your city specialized high schools, you have to actually test into them. My school offers around 30 AP classes as it was post AP classes. I really go to see In the course of my high school career, I've taken seven AP classes and I've taken the corresponding exams for each of them. In my sophomore year, I took AP Biology in my junior year. In my senior year, I took calculus a B, English literature and comparative government with economics on all of those exams. Harbert has kind of a mixed dance when it comes to taking Ap scores and using those as college credit. I'm so basically what post a peas are is like they're kind of like a P classes except AP classes are there prerequisites. One of my post AP classes is called topics and modern physics. In order to qualify, even apply to take that class, you have to have a 92 average and AP Physics one or two, I think I'm not really sure. The curriculums of these courses are entirely designed by my school's faculty. Throughout my four years of high school, I've also taken three honors classes. One an Algebra two's last trigonometry, another one in pre Cal, which I took last year, and then the one I'm taking now, which is advanced Chinese conversational with a dialect in Mandarin. These honors classes are kind of a step in between, like regular classes and AP classes. My school does not wait t p s. I don't know how that really good birds on a 4.0 scale. When I'm being generous to myself, I like to say, have a 94 average something to know about Harvard, all the Ivys and basically any selective school you're applying to is that these schools tense of super scores. What super scoring means is that they take the highest score in the math and writing section. For all the sittings that you've had, I took the S a T twice once in March and once in August, I got literally the same score. Like the different sections s O. They took my highest math score and my highest reading score, and that gave me a total of 14. Because of it, I think you should take the S A. T multiple times. So if you're good at test taking, I would say Try the A C t. You might like a better I never took it, but I wish I did. The's s 82 subjects us allow applicants to show their expertise in a certain like feel to Harvard and all the IV's with the exception of some of Cornell is colleges require you to take to s a T twos and submit those scores one in stem and one in humanity's. I would recommend you taking math to one of humanity's and one in science just in case you're a science person. Because some schools like M I t your party to send a map and a science as 82 s a t twos I submitted were math too, and U S history. All of these s 80 two's are out of 800 I would highly recommend taking math to over math one, because math one is basically useless. Kids who take the math to exam get a job like a perfect 800. So I recommend taking s 80 two's when you're taking no corresponding AP course. Of course, you can always like self study for school doesn't have a peas. While taking those AP courses, I feel like that would have been helpful for me and given me more options. So fun facts best Eddie wherever cost, like $25 rip all but hey, Harvard Gang. It's not like, Ah, Harvard admissions officer came to use like Jordan. Some of the kids who got accepted into Harvard from my school in the past few years, I think if you have a 14 50 92 above Harvard starts looking at all those applicants. The same, like the kids with those scores so good with the 1600 is no longer weren't more than a student with a 14 50 or sitting with the 92 verses in 98. If you have the low the scores, don't let that get you down. If you're really passionate and if you have, like special took it thinks about you, then I think you have a better chance of getting in, even if you have below those scores. It's not what you could do with your transcript once your junior, because Eugenia years kind of your last year that colleges will see. Um, colleges request your mid year score reports of your senior year, and they also look at your final year scores to see if they will receive you. If you want to see that essay that I wrote for the Harvard University supplement, I will link it somewhere on the screen or in the description. I'll be making another video on my extracurriculars because I truly feel that my extracurriculars, it really did get me into Harvard as well some of the other schools I mentioned.
