Harvard, arguably the top academic institution in the world, maintains highly selective and until recently a mystical admissions process. Princeton, Stanford and Oxford Universities, obviously take issue with Harvard’s perception and allure. That is for perhaps another blog. Today we focus on who gets considered to reside at Harvard Yard. As you can imagine, all valedictorians are not created equal. This blog serves two purposes: first, to highlight your chances of admission, and second, to explain how Harvard, and presumably other top colleges, select students for their entering class. The Rating Scale is based on an applicant’s score from 1 to 6, one being the best. If Harvard is a destination you desire, your achievements must perform at a high level, for an extended period of time, and must be validated by impartial, objective and reputable supporters. Finally, you must possess unique abilities that meet the mission and institutional needs of the schools you apply to and preferentially score a 1 or 2 out of a possible 6. Moreover, you must display fine character, leadership, genuine service, and maturity and achievements beyond your years. Here we go!
