<p>Good recommendations from my two teachers ("one of the top few students i have met in my 22-year teaching career" lol), haven't gotten one yet from my guidance counselor.</p>

<p>Good, not great essays</p>

<p>ECs aren't super diverse, but are great for what they are, pretty good GPA, good course load.</p>

<p>Harvard and Yale might be tough, but ED to COlumbia w/ good recommendations and good essays + your devotion shown in EC will get ya in.</p>
