    Very good shot, I'd say. I was accepted 2016 ED I, and my scores were all slightly below yours (31 ACT and 3.85 GPA). The rest of your application looks pretty strong as well, especially the music stuff. Good luck! :)

    Really impressive stats! Were you accepted? I'm thinking about applying early and have similar ECs/awards/GPA...
