    Maybe it's annoying of me to ask this, but it was just too tempting...especially regarding extracurriculars, which I'm worried about, how strong an applicant do I look?

    SAT:
    Critical Reading 800
    Math 660 (but i just retook it so this SHOULD improve...)
    Writing 710

    ACT:
    33 composite
    English 35
    Math 31
    Reading 36
    Science 28

    AP exam: English Literature 5

    GPA 3.69 unweighted, 4.16 weighted

    Foreign Language Honor Society inductee Spanish 2 years, Latin 1
    National Latin exam 3 years, cum laude certificate freshman year & silver medal grades 10 and 11
    Brown University Book Award
    NHS member
    honor roll every term so far, some high honors

    Extracurriculars:
    4 years varsity hockey, captain (12th), Unsung Hero Award (11th)
    1 year jv softball, 3 years varsity, captain (12th)
    &various club and summer hockey and softball

    Work:
    11th grade- worked at a tutoring center
    this year i'm working at a restaurant, 15 hours a week over the summer and about 10 since school has started

    I'm not sure I have enough extracurriculars...any thoughts would be appreciated!

    I agree with Luigi...avoid kryptonite and you'll be good to go. Your SATs are really impressive...way better then mine were. I think you are honestly good with your extracurricular activities...you hold a leadership position in almost every one. Good luck!

    thanks, all! I'm mostly worried about the lack of community service type extracurriculars...

    Then I would recommend doing some volunteer work, for a variety of reasons.
