<p>Good chance. You might want to specify your race/ethnicity because that is a factor as well.</p>

<p>Well i'm indian so.... yea...
Thanks a lot though for the chance-ing</p>

<p>Still a good chance, but that obviously doesn't help.</p>

<p>I think that you have a good chance</p>

<p>You pass objectively, but questions may be raised about your EC's. Don't get me wrong, they are extensive, but there is no specific focus at the moment. Are you interested in Biology? Mathematics? Programming? Guitar? Make sure you define A FEW of your interests that you really want to show to the adcoms to make you stand out from the crowd.</p>

<p>It looks like you took a lot of AP courses, but only two AP exams? Or did you not get scores back yet? It will not be good for you to take AP classes and not take the tests. Our local schools require students to take the test if they take the class.</p>

<p>Also, your ECs skew very geeky and narrow. Any sports, even recreational? How about anything else non-math non-science? Kids with high scores are a dime a dozen, and MIT wouldn't care if you played sports. But Penn cares a lot about extracurriculars.</p>

<p>No, your EC's are strong, too. I like how you have a mix of music and academic activities (Robotics, FBLA, etc.). I never mentioned sports once in my application (I run to keep in shape, but nothing else) and I got in. Follow your passions----if they aren't sports, don't worry about it.</p>
