Cornell Admission Prospects

Hey everyone! Here are my stats, please let me know about my likelihood of getting into Cornell.
I'm a sophomore in Toronto, Canada. I'm currently in pre-IB and my dream school is Cornell. My current rolling average is around 88%. I plan to continue with IB, taking 3 HLs- English, Math, and Economics. I also plan to take SATs, aiming for a score of 2200+.

My extra curricular activities include:
FBLA (NLC qualifier)
Oxfam leader (1 hr/week)
Wind Ensemble, (which I will be dropping next year) (1hr/week)
Symphonic Band (2hrs/week)
(Both of these ensembles are MusicFest Canada national qualifiers)
Music Council Executive (I am the media representative this year but I am likely to be elected as president next year.).(at least 2hrs/week, not including planning done outside of meetings)
Tutoring a third grader in Math and English (1hr/week)
Music Tutoring (time spent depends on number of tutees)

I am hoping to major in either Economics or something to do with Biology or Public Health. Other than SAT I, are there any subject tests I should take for these majors? Please give me any tips that you may have! Thanks in advance :)

    I don't know if this is relevant, but I am also a female of Chinese descent.
    I have also played piano since I was 4, up until just before my sophomore year. I completed and received the RCM Grade 8 certificate, and finished the practical exams for the Grade 10 certificate.

    Do you mean Cornell in Ithaca, NY (Ivy League) or Cornell College in Iowa?
