Harvard loves overachievers – they want valedictorians, those who are always selected as the “first out of X,” people who lead others, who make television appearances, etc….
Nail Your GMAT
This year’s AVERAGE GMAT was 730 – ridiculous, right? Right. But GMAT scores are skyrocketing, and hopefully so is yours.
The single most important thing Harvard looks for is leadership. They want to see that in each and every aspect of your life (professional AND personal), you have been a leader. If you can prove this piece, you have a real shot.
Everybody applies to Harvard. And we mean everybody. You will increase your chances if you apply in the first two rounds.
