So throughout my high school experience (a rising senior) I have involved myself in a myriad of activities. And now it's finally time to put them into the common app. How would these ECs stand up against IVY league/top liberal arts schools (I already have a 2260 SAT/760+subject test scores)

    They seem solid, do you have any volunteer hours from work during the school year? Also you might want a little bit more leadership, other then that they are great!
