Hi I was just wondering what my chances at Harvard EA and Penn ED look like. 1460 SAT, 780 Physics, 780 IIC, still have to take writing. 95 Avg at Stuyvesant High School. AP Euro History 5, AP US History 5, AP Physics B 4. Taking AP Calculus BC, AP Chemistry, AP Spanish, and CISCO certification course senior year.
EC's: Math Team 3 years, Indian Culture Club 3 years, National Honor Society 1 year, Stuyvesant Standard (newspaper) 1 year, Key Club 1 year, Altar Server at Roman Catholic Church 8 years. Nominated for National Math Award of USNMA by junior year math teacher.
Volunteered at Hospital 1 summer, 20 hrs/wk. Worked at private insurance brokerage 1 summer, 25/hrs wk, paid.
Where do I stand? Your advice would be most helpful.

Well, you do go to Stuyvesant and maintain a good average...so that is a plus, since Stuyvesant is well-known to both Harvard and Penn. You have excellent test scores, and your EC's are decent. This is good enough for UPenn. However, to be frank, you don't have an EC I would consider "outstanding" for consideration at Harvard. But, don't lose hope! There are people who get into Harvard w/o things like IMO, RSI, or Intel/Westinghouse, and admissions tends to be a crapshoot...good luck!
