Northwestern Theater Major/Musical Theater Admissions Questions

I am a senior this year and applying to Northwestern ED for the Theater Major and Applied Mathematics Major as part of of the 5 year dual degree program. Let's begin with a long list of my information. In terms of academics, I am a very strong student: Class rank of 3/340 (top 1% of high school class) GPA of 4.06 weighted (Odd GPA scale. A's in AP classes are counted 4.125 or something like that instead of 5) 35 ACT Composite. I am also looking at the Musical Theater Certificate Program. For starters, I have a very strong background in Vocal Music. I am a three year member of the WSMA State Honors Choir, I have had many Classical and Musical Theater Solos qualify for state in WSMA Solo and Ensemble Festivals. I have had over 5 years of voice lessons and worked with Professors from my local college. Additionally, I have been a part of a summer musical theater program at my local college, which has been great for musical theater experience. I have had leading roles in my school musicals Junior and Senior year (I only auditioned junior and senior year because I had conflicts Freshman and Sophomore year and did not know that I would end up wanting to pursue MT). I also have been part of school choirs and specifically a very competitive show choir, where I have found a niche for dancing. My dance and acting experience is limited, but I have no struggles with either. I was elected show choir dance captain for Junior and Senior year, plus I just started taking tap this past summer. I feel pretty confident in my chances of making it into Northwestern, but I have heard that the Theater Major is a b*tch to get into, and that has worried me. Not to mention a very competitive MT program as well. I am not a cherub (I have no idea what that even is) and I was hoping to get some info on my chances, especially because I am applying ED and very committed to this university. Thank you in advance!
