Additional Question: Would it be better for me to apply as a Chemical Engineering major or undecided? My credentials point towards me having a strong interest in Chemistry so applying with that major would make sense, but I'm really not sure I want to study it in college

    I would apply as undecided, especially if it has a higher acceptance rate. You seem like a brilliant individual, definitely very talented. Fortunately your extra curriculars haven't been so swayed towards one major that you would be forced into it and likely rejected if you didn't apply for it. I would recommend applying as undecided, and figure out what your true passion is at whichever college you end up at. The chance to get into any college is never guaranteed but you have a good chance at any school. If you write some kick butt essays and have some equally as good letters of recommendation, I would say you have a great shot.

    Hopefully I gave you some input to weigh both options.
