You have all the right scores, things you are doing, etc. It is a very difficult and challenging time to be applying to college right now – you are part of the second baby boom – more kids for less spots. You have a good range of schools that you’ve selected to apply to. Are you doing any early decision? Look into that – a lot of schools like the early decision applicants b/ca it shows serious interest. You really have nothing to lose by applying early to your top choice school IF you know exactly which one you’d like. I am assuming you are a California resident with all the CA schools you’ve listed. Have you considered any other schools also? Stanford? MIT? Make sure to write a good essay – showing the type of person you are – be honest, show that “well-roundedness” and seriousness about yourself. I can see that you are a conscientious young man so your chances are really good!
