dude, my friend is a second generation Pakastani and he got in a month ago. Your stats are much better than his (except his SAT score was 20 pts higher, and he applied to Columbia engineering). Dont listen to "weer" (queer would be a better name for him). You have a good shot. The only thing is that you could really do w/some more recs.

wtf you mean low class rank?!!

If they notice it, tbey'll probably reject you because you used prospective. Colleges hate that. Makes you look careless. But they probably won't notice, so don't worry too much.

The verbal's low for Harvard and the rest. A good essay could get you in.
