Earlier, this blog had posted some information about SAT/GPA stats for the UC schools as well as Stanford. Let us continue that tradition with Harvard.

OK. Now let’s look at the SAT distribution:
There is no real GPA requirement as Harvard is known for turning down people with perfect scores or GPA due to other factors such as leadership activities, volunteer work, research, internships, personal statements, and interviews. However, this does not mean that high scores and a competitive GPA are not important, but they are not the only factors. Make sure to talk with the Harvard Admissions Office to address your specific application questions. Visit http://www.admissions.college.harvard.edu/index.html
Fun Fact: The daily student newspaper of Harvard is called The Harvard Crimson (crimson being the official school color). This newspaper is featured heavily in the movie The Social Network.
