<p>Im no expert, but rather an applicant to Dartmouth for the Class of 2016 as well.
Based on what I gathered from a quick read of what you posted, I think you have a solid shot.
Your standardized testing is a little bit low, and I am wondering if you ended up submitting the SAT II scores as well, as that might be a bit of a risk. 680 in Chem isnt too bad, and the SAT II submission would show that you bothered to do it.
In your EC's you seem to have a lot of interest in leadership, music and science. This is a very interesting combination and something that you should outplay in your app.
I know that this is a little late, but im hoping you wrote a solid essay for your commonapp, because thats the only one they get, and im hoping that you touched upon your EC's (because that seems like the strongest point in your application).
IMO you have a solid shot. Best of luck!</p>

<p>Thanks! And the common app essay, I feel, I wrote well. I did submit extra essays with the application about Civitan. I was deferred from Duke, so I just retook the ACT so hopefully my score increased, but who knows.
Good luck to you too!</p>
