    You look like you're really involved with CS which is good! Really just do the best you can with grades and the SAT(you look like you're a good student). Try to form relationships with a few of your teachers! I think also being specific on your essays help as well. Feel free to ask me anything else!

    I wish I had that level of resume as yours. My school have nothing like AP Environmental Science, and bunch of people even messed with block lunches, leaving me with 0 opportunities to join clubs!
