I am a junior at a highschool in right outside of NYC (it's a pretty competative school) and would like to know if anyone could chance me at some schools that i am interested in which includes Cornell, Northeastern, Emory, UMich, or Notre Dame. If you dont think I could get into any of these schools just say so lmao need some constructive criticism and if there are any suggestions that you have for me go ahead!! (I'm an asian girl hoping to go for engineering)

Freshman year: Geometry A, Global 1, Biology A, Computer applications, Latin 1A, French 2A, Concert orchestra (will get into more detail later) English 10A Got A+ in all of them
Global 2 over summer A+
Sophomore year: Concert orchestra, AP Biology, Chemistry A, AP US History, English 11A, French 3A, ALgebra 2/Trig A Got A+ in all exceptt for US where I got an A-
Also got 5's on both of the AP exam
Junior Year: Concert orchestra, AP Lang, AP government, AP Macroeconomics, AP computer science, AP chemistry, Pre-calc A, Physics A
Senior year (probably): Concert orchestra, AP Literature, AP psych, AP Statistics, AP Calc BC, AP Physics C (maybe), yearbook as an independent study, and health

MY school is rather large so the orchestra is divided into 3 so concert is audition based and thats the one i am in

Test scores:
Havent take many yet but got a 1460 on PSAT as a sophomore and 32 on pACT taking the PSAT again soon and will start taking SATs soon also

Competative Youth orchestra since 10th grade
Local Tutor in my town for middle schoolers
Play cello at local nursing homes and volunteer
Member of a volunteering club in my town
Bioinformatics member (club where we research genes basically and give big presentation)
member of many clubs which include newspaper, united in our differences, N.O. (basically anti-bullying), amnesty international, and more

    idk what makes you think you don't have shots at these schools, tbh you have a pretty good chance at most of them.

    so I admittedly don't know much about Engineering schools, but are the ones you've listed Engineering? I live in the south, but you should apply to Ga Tech over Emory for engineering. Your stats look good to me. Good luck.
