Specifically, I am looking to apply to Harvard, Brown, Johns Hopkins, Cornell, and Stanford (amongst others I am also considering). Please chance me. Your help is much appreciated!

Country: Canada
Ethnicity: Asian (female)

IB/AP: not offered at my high school (however, I am taking the most rigorous courses offered, such as calculus, etc.)
Average (in %): consistently in the 90s, usually around 95%
SAT Score: First time with zero practice: 2030 (CR: 630, Writing: 660, Math: 740). I expect a MUCH better 2nd score!!!
SAT Subject Tests: will be taking 3 in November

Essay writing skills: excellent
Teacher recs: will be stupendous
Interview skills: excellent

Interests, Volunteer & Work Experience: piano (level 8 certificate), violin for a few years, volunteer at a hospital (200+hrs), volunteer tutoring at school, work at a library, many other volunteer events...

School involvement: was very involved in music in gr.9 (many bands and even choir), many youth justice groups in gr.11 & planning to join again in gr.12 (probably...), badminton intermurals in gr.10

Leadership: link crew leader at school (we welcome new gr.9 students and plan fun activities!), lead kids through educational activities at a volunteer event

Awards & Special things: various academic awards at school, various piano awards from festivals (got selected to advance to provincials, but became very ill... this is a touchy subject... I ended up not being able to attend because I was taking 8 pills a day and I felt so horrible ): .. ANYWAYS), painting (art was shown at a festival and displayed in a *professional* art gallery; honourable mention in Robert Bateman contest)

Oh and I have a customer service training certificate for disabled/impaired customers.

Field I'm going to go in to: medical/health sciences

Please chance me, especially for Brown, Johns Hopkins, and Harvard (my top 3)!

And all BS aside... I actually have a personality. I am not a brainiac automaton who sits around and studies all day long. I think that I am an intriguing person.

Thank you for your time
