I already have a page for wharton EA, but since there is no option of an EA i am creating a new page for ED.

I will be applying to wharton early decision soon and I wanted to know what my chances are of getting in. I live in India and am currently doing the IB.

Breakdown of my scores:
ACT: 33 english, 34 math, 34 reading, 34 science , composite 34
SAT I: I didnt take it
SAT II:
Math level 2: 790
Physics: yet to receive my my score
IB: I got a 33/42 in my finals( i know its terrible!). But im sure my school will predict me a lot higher as I have done well in school previously .
Subject that took : Math HL, Physics HL , Economics HL, Business Management SL , English language and literature SL , and french ab
I am doing my extended essay in math. Does this benefit me in any way during the admission process ?

IGCSE scores( not too great):
Business: A*
Extended math: A
Additional math: A
Physics: A
Chemistry:A
English:A
Geography: B
English literature: B
Spanish: B
Biology:B

I have also taken AP calc BC but im yet to recieve my scores for that. I have self studied this.
Taking the TOEFL soon as well.

EC:
Founder of the chess club at my school. President of the club as well.
I have done grade 7 of classical guitar from LCM . Been playing for over 10 years.
I am a part of the youngest professional rock and roll band in my state. We have played at over 20 gigs and have been paid at a few occasions. We have been together for over 5 years. Even hosted a charity event where we raised over $7500 for building street lights for the underprivileged. We have been showcased on the newspaper multiple times as well.
I am part of a band that published it musics on itunes. I have played lead in 1 of their songs.
I am my school's basketball captain. We have come first in many inter school competitions. I am also part of the under 19 district team. I will be playing nationals soon.
I have attended a summer program at CTY( the john hopkins one) and studied biotechnology for 3 weeks.
I have done multiple internships as well. I have done one at EA sports ( the one that made fifa and the like) where is learnt the process in game development and the way a firm works. I have done one at HDFC housing loans and learnt about how housing loans function and its relation with the economy. I am currently doing an internship at D E shaw where i am learning about financial investments.
I am currently building a computer lab for a local school where we will install computers and projectors to help children learn.
I am my schools house captain ( like a vice president)
I have also done some minor things like coming 3rd in extempore and leading my house to 1st in inter house marching. There are a few other things as well but i dont think i should include them.

My essay: I feel it is very unique as I talk about my struggles in life and the way i have changed during high school through a chess board. I am telling my story while playing chess, comparing each position on the board to my life. I feel this ties in very well with my ec's as well.

I have very good rec letters from my teachers as well. My econ teacher loves me and im sure her letter was like a 11/10.
My math teachers rec would have also been really good as I love math and show a lot of interest in math. Her english is not too great so i think it would be a 9 or 8.
My physics teacher and I have a great connection as well. unfortunately i didnt perform too well in my finals in physics so idk how it would turn out to be. ill give it an 8 or 7
my councilor loves me. Im sure it would be a 9 or 10. Her english is sloppy though.

Im not sure about my rank as my school does not rank us, but im pretty sure i fall under the top 10%.

I honestly have no idea about my chance of getting in. I have good ec's, but my IB score is pretty low. Please let me know about what you guys think. Thanks
