(I accidently posted this on the college search forum)
Hi, I'm a senior and I'll be applying to Carnegie Mellon (MCS), Northwestern, University of Rochester, NYU, Northeastern, and a couple others.

GPA: ~3.67-3.8 or 6/7 (I go to an IB school so conversions are rough)
SAT I: 2110 (680 CR, 740 M, 690 W)
SAT II: 800 Math II, 700 Chem

ECs: Math Club/Team (VP), Chess Club/Team (VP of club/ Captain of team), MOUSE Squad (VP), MOUSE Corps, Newspaper Club, Debate Team, NYC math circle, chem/math tutor, guitarist in my church band, wrote an article in a national magazine, part of a carnegie hall program where i helped compose a song and invited to perform it (but couldn't because i was sick at the time)

Jobs/Occupation: paid Intern at citibank, intern at northrop grumman, presented at emoti-con (NYC tech fair), invited to present at Maker-faire (NYC tech/sci fair), made a smartphone app to help the blind and visually impaired

Awards: letter of commendation for the national merit PSAT thing, highest AMC 10/12 scorer (2011, 2012), and other not so important stuff

Rec letters: one is from my math teacher, who told me he would write me a "stellar and amazing letter", and another from my history teacher who should write me a decent letter

Other notes:
-I'm going to retake the SAT I in december and aim for 2200...
-my school is ranked the best in ny and 21st in the us by usa news so idk if that'll help.
-my GPA dropped during junior year because i started to slack off.
-i'm applying ED to CMU (MCS), so really the question should be whether or not i'll get in CMU (ED) but just in case i get rejected/deferred i want to know about my chances to my other schools

Anyways, please be as honest as possible about my chances.
