What does it take to get into the Ivy League?

What does it take to get into the Ivy League? Topic: All ivy writing services
June 20, 2019 / By Flora
Question: I am wondering what it will take to get into an Ivy league college, preferably Harvard. First, I will tell you a bit about myself. I am a 13 year old girl with a GPA of 4.0. I am currently enrolled the the Pre-International Bacalaureate program ( I am considering continuing the program throughout high school but I am unsure), and I participate in premier soccer and take classical piano lessons. I have done over 38 hours of community service and I intend on doing a lot more when I get to high school. I am at the top of my class; I was vice president of the student body in my 7th grade year, and currently I hold the postition on yearbook editor. I am also in 10th grade geometry honors with all pre-IB advanced courses. Also, I have scored in the 96th percentile for the FCAT tests in the state of FL for every test since 2nd grade- math, reading, writing, and science ( I scored in the 100th percentile for reading last year). Can you tell me what else I should do to increase my chance of getting into Harvard? -What is the lowest GPA that Harvard will take ( either for AP classes or just standardized classes)? -What does Harvard want in a potential student? - What is the preferable score to get on the SATs to get into Harvard? -How many ECs do you need? All answers are greatly appreciated.

Everyone applying to the ivies has the highest grades in the hardest classes and very high test scores. If you were valedictorian of your high school, you'd be an average applicant to Harvard. They take 6% of applicants. You need all that, and then you need a lot more. Nothing you said here would make you stand out, and you didn't give any good reasons to go there either - both of which you need.

Assuming your grades are good and you make time to devote to something outside your coursework, transferring to an Ivy from a school of comparable quality depends on the number of spaces available and a whole bunch of intangible factors, like whether you have a skill or an interest that will help to balance out the existing class. The catch is, there are very, very few spots available anywhere but Cornell (some years, Harvard hasn't had any), and you can't predict what they'll be looking for in terms of those other factors. So rather than trying to escape before you've even started, I think you need to reassess why you chose Cornell in the first place and why you're so convinced you don't want to be there now. For certain subjects, like engineering, it's arguably better than the other Ivies - and it's not really considered less academically prestigious than Brown. Worry less about the name you'll have on your diploma and more about the education you really need, which may not be from a "top" school at all.

Sorry to let you know, however you've got a very slim hazard of getting into an Ivy League school after a JC although you get all A+'s and graduate with honors. And sure, the SAT will still topic even though they'll appear at your JC stats extra.

Top 20 school: excellent Ivy: a chance. Your grades are good, the AP scores shows weighting to math/science, which also is good. If I wanted to be critical of your application it would be in the area of extracurriculars. You aimed to be well rounded - the Ivy League & Stanford/Duke/MIT/CIT do not necessarly look for well rounded: they look for stars. What do Debbie Thomas (olympic skater), Tiger Woods and John McEnroe have in common? They all went to Stanford. I'm going out on a limb here, but I'll bet none of them had M800. M800's can be, and are, routinely rejected by highly selective schools. Give it a go and good luck. But apply to some quality, large State schools as well: e.g., Wisconsin/Michigan/Berkley/and the flagship state school where you live. Again, good luck.

Do you/parents have the money for Harvard? also if your thinking of even going to Harvard, you shouldn't even be on here, asking a question like this.
