Can't really think of the other ones right now, but they exist :)</p>

<p>ECs/Community Service/Employment:
Music: Played trumpet since age 9. I...
...have gone to NH Allstate (2 years)
...went to All New Englands (1 year)
...play in a professional jazz band
...volunteer for community service fundraisers
...have played taps numerous times, including at friends brother's funeral (KIA in Afgh.)
Alpine Skiing- varsity captain (senior year), state meet twice
National Honor Society (treasurer)
Volunteer at local hospital (2 hrs/week)
Volunteer as AP Calc assistant (when needed)
Work on and off at dad's medical supply business (he's self employed)</p>

<p>Hooks:</p>

<p>Music: I've really done a lot more than kids at my high school normally do. Apparently I was the first one to go to All New Englands in 10 years.
Academics: Took a lot of stuff not readily available to me, guidance counselor says she's giving a good recommendation due to this. Also, the engineering competition looks good.
Heritage: LOTS of people on my mother's side went to Cornell. Apparently I had a relative in the first graduating class.</p>

<p>Well that's about it. Just give me an honest opinion :)</p>

<p>you can NEVER be sure with Stanford, you could be perfect and they would deny you. But I would say you have a really good shot at Cornell and probably MIT as well, you seem to have the whole package. Maybe more community service wouldn't hurt though.</p>

<p>I'd say you have a good shot at Cornell and decent at the others with a strong app and essays. Being from NH is a plus.</p>

<p>very impressive, i think you have amazing shot at Cornell and a good one at the others</p>

<p>Stanford 6%
Cornell 40%
MIT 8%</p>

<p>^ Don't pay attention to him.</p>
