    This mostly boils down to music. Are there stem ECs that enhance your own experiences, not just for little kids. A non-profit, on its own, is not a tip.

    Any tippy top will look for balanced strengths in both parts of the SAT, so the 670 is low. Count on the competition for Stanford to be crazy fierce. The bio S2 is also bit low and you haven't told AP scores. Plus, TT colleges do look for how one engages with peers. That's not generally founding, leading or titles, or just the fact of being in music groups. (Even as a music major.) They want to see a relevant rounding that shows you're the sort who will engage in various ways, once there.

    Being a URM will definitely help, but at a 670, you are below the 25th percentile for EBRW (only 20.7% in the 2018-2019 CDS were between 600-699) and this is a school with a lot of athletes. What is good about Stanford REA is that it is pretty digital. If you get deferred, it means that you are likely a strong candidate at other reachy schools. I would also not get too discouraged if you are rejected. Contrast that with Harvard which rejects very few in the early round where an REA rejection would be grounds for concern for other reaches.
