<p>First of all, I apologize for the length of this post...and if you read all of it and actually respond (with something meaningful), I will love you forever...in a non-creepy way. :)</p>
<p>I personally feel as if I won't make it into any of these schools. Even though I know that I have a shot at some of them...I'm still getting really worried. Anyway...chance me, please? :) [You don't have to do all of them...obviously. I'm really looking for just #1-5]</p>
<p>1) UC Berkeley
3) Notre Dame
4) University of Chicago
5) University of Illinois Urbana Champaign
6) Northwestern University
7) University of Michigan
8) University of Wisconsin Madison
10) University of Illinois Chicago (UIC)</p>

-Piano lessons (1st-11th grade) I've received some rewards at festivals, competitions, and such. I also passed the Achievement In Music exam for level 12 (a college level exam, I might add) at the age of 15 (which, according to the judges, was really young).
-Violin lessons/orchestra (5th-10th grade) In 10th grade, I became section leader of the second violins.
-School community service club (10th-12th grade) I honestly don't know how many hours I have on this. Not excrutiatingly many, but somewhere in the hundreds.
-English tutor (11-12) I received credit on my transcript for this, and the hours also go toward community service.
-Math team (11-12)
-Science olympiad (11-12)
-Debate (10) I tried this for a year. Then I realized that I'm not the think-on-my-feet debating type.
-Class board (10) I also tried this for a year. I wasn't particularly fond of planning dances...especially when I didn't plan on going.</p>
-Piano awards. Nothing special. Probably not worth noting.
-Violin awards. Again, nothing special.
(I can't think of any more off the top of my head right now.)</p>
