Short Personal Story

"It alright getting into Harvard. It wasn't really life changing because my parents, siblings and grandparents had gone there so I kind of just assumed that I'd get in. But, it was pretty cool.

I was pretty excited for the Frats and Sororities there because my brother said that they were awesome and let me go to one of the parties the last time our family visited him.

I liked Boston, the city is pretty unique, and it has a different vibe to it than NY. But, in general, getting into Harvard wasn't that big a deal for me. It was cool, but it wasn't too crazy."

Useful Advice

"School wasn't really that hard for me so I guess my only advice would be to be smart.

Getting into Harvard, to be honest, isn't really that hard. Like literally, if you're smart, score decently on the SAT and are literate you are pretty much guaranteed to get in.

If you're smart, you've got a good shot of getting in. If you're not, either get smart, or don't bother applying because you'll be wasting your time."
