    Obviously, your Grades/EC's are great. I think you should try to raise your ACT score though, b/c a number of other OOS applicants will have higher scores. Also, what are you writing a thesis for?

    I worry that you are unfocused - you have a lot of moderately impressive stuff on there, but nothing outstanding. And a lot of it is vague. What does it mean that you "helped" found something? Did you attend one meeting or what?
