    You spelled "curricular" wrong, which was a bit of a non-sequitor amongst one of the most insanely time consuming list of EC's I have ever seen.

    you seem to have an okay chance (good SAT subject tests), but your EC list is suspiciously long and your SAT's could use a little boost.

    playing the pakistan card may help you, but from the looks of your resume, your country of origin doesn't seem to have disadvantaged you much.
