    One thing I think you may be lacking is in leadership. It is a huge part of the application (20% or 30%), and besides JV captain (which is a good one) you didn’t really have anything.How about trying to start a fundraiser in NHS, or something. One thing I did is volunteer at a sports camp and help young kids learn about a sport you love! Its fun and looks great on an application.Maybe you just didn’t put them down, but were any of the community service hours helping teach, leading a group of people for something, or anything along those lines?

    You have great academics, awesome GPA, SAT and AP’s. You also have good EC’s.

    Honestly I can’t say what your chances are, since I’m not on the admissions board.

    Hope I helped:thumb:
