A boost in your SAT scores could be to your advantage. Your grades and other test scores are excellent. Your EC's are decent but could be better, and I don't see any real leadership, which is a minus. Are you planning to play either sport in college?

Finally, your minority status is the kicker. I highly doubt you'll get rejected outright, but Harvard EA defers a large number of people.
