EC's - How much is enough?

I really want to go to FSU for Film Studies. Right now I am a Sophomore and am home schooled with FLVS. These are my Extra Curriculars:

Creative Writing
History
Newspaper
Yearbook
Student Ambassador

*I am home schooled this year because of my health problems, so I don't know what else I can do to really prove myself, you know? Does anyone have any advice as to what I could do?
I'm taking honors classes, but won't be able to take AP until next year because I'll have to take the exam.

    I feel that EC's fall a distant fourth to GPA, strength of core curriculum, and test scores. If those first three are solid, your current EC's are more than enough.

    Definitely take AP classes when available.

    As many as you can handle. If you have to be home school because of health problems then you can't handle it because handling it also involves health wise.

    Thanks for the advice! Right now my GPA is a 3.9 but I havn't taken any of the testing yet. I'm really going to try to take AP next year. And my health problems will hopefully be over shortly :)
