I'm a current junior at a public school in Minnesota, class size of 680. Class rank isn't used anymore, but I'm giving an educated guess at around 30 of 680.
GPA: 4.21(after 3 quarters, guessing around 4.3 after 4)
ACT- 32 (retake, hopefully 33)should I take subject tests?
IB Diploma Candidate
HL Math, HL English, HL History, SL Biology, SL spanish, SL Art
2 year varsity soccer (team captain of both freshman and sophomore teams)
2 year varsity lacrosse
2 year lettering member of math team
coach youth teams for both sports during summer
member of premier level soccer club over summer(big deal)
member of presidential student council at school(not like student gvt, volunteer basis, not a huge deal)
Volunteer at local library
Work as ice-rink attendant during winters
1 year of team rowing
Any suggestions of things that will strengthen my resume?
Will I get into Denver and will they give me any aid? Assume I won't get any need based aid, which is almost surely true.

Opinions and advise appreciated!

    you will certainly get in--check out the financial aid section, you will likely qualify for some merit money as well.
