    Yes, you could get in (based on stats) and no, that won't have any affect. Those were numbers of enrolled students that were misreported. The admit numbers are correct and of course the bar is higher for admits. However, you are basically in the middle of the admit pool. I suppose it would be nice if you had more leadership positions, but I don't know, I'm not an admissions officer. Also, I question if they'll be impressed with all the honor society memberships. That's kind of expected or taken for granted with anyone with a high GPA. Maybe it will be good enough for Emory, but I don't know about the other elites.
