Well, it would probably help to have math or science related activities. I don't really know how they look upon "mid to high 90 grades" rather than letter grades, but that sounds like the equivalent of an A, which would be good enough. Grades don't really matter beyond a point, what matters is what you do outside of school. So you probably don't need to worry about that aspect.
By the way, I'm in Arts and Sciences, and I have to take 5 humanities/social studies classes, a writing seminar (because I have English AP credit for the other), and one language class (because I tested out of the intro level language), while engineers have to take 6 humanities/social studies/language classes total, at least 2 of which have to be 2000-level, and 1 or 2 writing seminars depending on whether you have English AP credit. So it's actually almost exactly the same, the only difference being that an engineer could take 6 non-technical classes in 3 of 7 groups, as long as 2 are at least 2000-level whereas an Arts student has to take 5 humanities/social studies in at least 4 of 5 different categories + a 2000-level language. [Arts students also have 2 breadth requirements, but usually they are fulfilled with courses that are already being used for the humanities/social studies classes.] The requirements for the humanities/social studies are pretty lenient - cognitive science and networks, two pretty CS-related courses, can be used to fulfill two different humanities/social studies requirements. Also, the CS course requirements for the CS major for Arts and Engineering are exactly the same, and there's nothing stopping you from taking upper-level math/science courses if you are in Arts/Sciences (and the math and science depts. are in Arts/Sciences anyway; which is why I'm in arts since I'm double majoring). Anyway, that's not a reason not to apply to engineering, but just keep in mind that you'll still probably have to take effectively the same amount of humanities/social science (and this would be true at any school; I think many schools like MIT actually make you take more). You do get a BS degree rather than a BA, I don't know if that means anything since the curricula are the same, but it might be a plus.
Are you allowed to use Score Choice? If so, don't submit Math 1 for sure, and probably not Chemistry either. Otherwise, it might be a good idea to retake Chemistry.
