- Organized and led a tennis camp for underprivileged children during one summer.
- Worked for local Realtor, designed/maintained website.

Other Stuff:

Minor, but maybe crucial stuff:

- I have 2 uncles who went to Harvard and currently have two cousins from both sides currently at Harvard. (does this matter at all?)

very nice stats. I'd say you have a pretty good chance, however, admission at harvard can be a crapshoot so don't go crazy if you don't get it.

dude, u r totally out! i know people hate the hear this but good medicines always tastes bitter. Seriously look for some Community Colleges that aren't too imfamous. You won't have much problem getting in those I guess. A state univ shall be ur reach, well, I mean fourth tier of course. It's ok, there's still hope, u can transfer later or apply to a good graduate program.
