Worried about my chances, especially EC's

<p>Hello, I am a rising senior, applying to colleges because Common App just opened (ohgawd)
could someone look through my statistics and help me become more knowledgeable about my chances to certain colleges, like Cornell, Emory, Stanford and USC? In cases like Cornell, I'd like to apply as a biology & society major. Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>Race: Asian
Location: Texas, in the Dallas area
School: 4A Public High School, with around 360 kids in my year, with a total of around 1.1k kids</p>

<p>Grades: 3.95 Unweighted
Rank: 9/~360
Classes Taken in Freshman, Sophomore, Junior Years: AP WHIST, AP USH, AP EUROH, 3 Years of Spanish
Classes to be Taken in Senior Year: BC Calc, AP BIO, AP Environmental, AP GOV/ECON, AP LIT, AP COMP SCI, ISM (Independent Study and Mentorship Program)</p>

3 Years of Band, Leadership Committee on Year 3
3 Years of NHS
2 Years Mission Trip to Taos (w/ Church)
2 Years of Youth Leadership (Church)
Internship w/ Portfolio</p>

<p>Standardized Tests:
SAT: 2200, 750/760/690 (R/M/W)
SAT II: Planning to take US HIST and MATH II (Will the fact that I'm taking a Humanities Subject test instead of a Science one hurt my chances?)</p>

<p>And that's it, I think. What colleges could I get into with these stats and how could I further my chances? Thanks for your time, once again.</p>

<p>Bump? </p>

<p>Stanford is probably a reach, USC might be a match, Cornell you could probably get into... I don't know about Emory though.</p>

<p>Thanks for the reply!</p>

<p>Academics are decent for all the schools you listed except for Stanford. But you're right, ECs do lean on the weaker side. Stanford is a definite reach. The others aren't as tough, but are reaches nonetheless b/c of ECs. Nothing a good essay can't help you in with though.</p>

<p>Your grades are quite good and you can get admission in Cornell and Emory easily. The cut off percentage is not so high in these colleges. Stanford can also be a good choice. But since few years their has been an increase in the number of applicants here. So you may find some difficulty while applying. I don't have much idea about USC as none of my friends study there so that I can get the information.</p>

<p>Ugh, I wish I could visit some of these campuses to get the vibe of them...</p>
