Wondering if Harvard or MIT would admit these stats:

SATs: 800 Math, 770 Verbal
SATIIs: 800 Math IIC, 800 Physics, 710 Writing
AP: 5 Calc BC, 5 US History, 5 Physics B, 5 Biology, 3 Modern Europe, 4 more coming this year

GPA: 4.00/4.33, top 10% but unranked class
Heaviest schedule in class

$3000 in high school scholarships for mathematics
96th in midwest in tennis ; 1st/2nd singles, co-captain for school
National Merit Semifinalist
A in Economics class taken at Harvard Summer School
Holocaust Museum Tour Guide/ English Teacher for spanish immigrants
qualified for AIME and state math competitions
4th in state in Spanish High School examination
Chess Club Pres / Math Club / etc.
Spanish Honors Society ; nice recs, essays, etc.

Is there something I can fix? Please comment.

If you got into the summer school, I'm sure you'll get into the college!

If only that were the case...Harvard summer school fills its classes with people willing to pay a lot. But not everyone gets A's in their classes, though.
