<p>I'm a sophomore and I have an issue with time and picking ECs. I think I'm interested in too many things, so that if I do them all, I'll end up getting spread too thin, having way too many late nights and just stressing out on a daily basis.<br>
Basically I play a fall sport that's pretty time-consuming (3-4 hours/day plus weekend tournaments, and starts like a month before school does so it limits summer programs too), but I love it a lot even though my parents hate it. But I have absolutely no chance of playing this in college because I'm way way way too short. I also write for the school newspaper and I want to be an editor next year, but that's going to be an hour after school very often. I also want to do science competitions (my school has a LOT: sciOly, Oscibowl, Scibowl, JETS, wondercup, HOSA, etcetc) and I'll be taking a pretty heavy class load (for me, at least: AP Physics, Calc BC, English Honors, Finite/Discreet Math, CPUSH that might be lie APUSH depending on what teacher I get; other trivial stuff). I'm an officer of two clubs at my school.</p>
<p>So what should I pick; or better yet does anyone have tactics on saving time or getting things done faster?
My goal for college is UC berkeley/Stanford; aiming for a career in bio/med or engineering. Currently I have 4.0 unweighted, 5 in AP Bio and taking 4 more AP tests this year, 223 on PSAT, a few little awards but a decent amount of participation/volunteering.... what are my chances?</p>
