I am going to be a senior in the fall and I am thinking about applying to Harvard, but please tell me whether I have a shot or any way that I can improve my application. I have good scores but mediocre talents/ECs
SAT II chem:800
SAT II math IIC:800
SAT II Bio:800
SAT II U.S. History: 790
SAT II Chinese: 800
and I am taking writing in the fall.
GPA: 3.9 unweighted
Rank: top 1% out of 400
By the time that I graduate, I will have taken 7 APs, I already have 5s in Bio, Chem, and U.S. history
art club-vice president
Latin honor society
habitat for humanities volunteer
hospital volunteer for 300 hours
Latin exam awards
Mt. Holyoke Book Award
National merit probably finalist PSAT:234
the other schools that I am applying to, in order of preference are:
Washington University in St. Louis
please give me some advice, thank you very much
p.s. I am Chinese, which is overly represented in most of the schools that I am applying to.

false modesty = bad.
your stats look fine. apply. don't ask people whether or not to do it, just do it. you're going into your senior year - enjoy it and work hard. not sure if those two are mutually exclusive or not. it certainly didn't seem that way my senior year. stay involved in all the EC's you enjoy, get out of the ones you don't enjoy. the most important thing for you to work on from this point on is the essays. with a 1600, you should apply wherever you want and see what happens. you'll get into a few of the ones on your list.
