I know that amherst is my first choice school and I'm planning to apply early there this year. My other option would be to apply to Wellesley early. Is there anyone that has any advice?

Classical music is my big thing. I am a student at Manhattan School of Music's Precollege program, which requires me to travel to New York City every weekend. I'm a voice student there, and I'm also very involved in the music program at my school.
In addition to that I work with my school's service group that orients new students and gives tours to prospective students.
I also have been given the responsibility this year of coordinating my school's peer tutoring program, which requires me to set up students with tutors that suit their needs. This is considered a real leadership position in my small, private school.
Any advice anyone has or input on my chances would be greatly appreciated.
