~Essays + Recs

submitting 3 essays, all my teachers said they really liked them
1 rec from history teacher who is also my coach, we're very good friends and it should be personal
1 rec from physics teacher...ehhh decent but definitely not stellar
1 rec from the CMIO at cornell med college

So how do my chances look? Will I be able to get past the "asian male from nj" barrier?

thanks guys
