I know ECs don't matter too much, but I have a competivive ACT (33) and good grades (maybe just a bit below Dukes average- per naviance .2ish below, but I had a bad freshman year) but I want to know if my ECs are good. Track takes up a lot of time, so I don't have much, but I'm dedicated and I think I'm kind of unique (but I could have bias)


Indoor Track (will be 4 years, have won/placed at some big competitions)
Outdoor Track (will be 4 yrs)
Internship in a European Government for a month (got a rec from the guy- I did some pretty cool things and went to meetings and all- it was a lot of fun. Will this type of thing stand out, I know where mightn't matter too much, but that it is a national govt must be pretty unique, right?)
Student Council (elected) ( a little over 3 yrs, have a leadership position- I organized a fundraiser for Haiti and a ping pong tourney along with a 9-11 memorial)
Founder of GAA club (Irish sports- 2 yrs, have some leadership like captain)
founded a school fan club for after school activities (1 yr) *
NHS/Tutoring Contributor for Newspaper (2 yrs)
Interned at colligate baseball league for 2 years (game day operations)
Wrote and helped edit their yearbook for 3 years
Mowed lawns during spring/summer/fall as a job 4 yrs
Cross Country (Frosh Captain) (1 yr)

Would you be able to rate my ECs for a school like Duke? Thanks!
