"HELP ME!", "BE HONEST-Am I a decent Harvard applicant?", and now "To be or not to be"

For most people, it’s usually sufficient to post once... But three times?

Stop obsessing... and enjoy your summer…

Oh I forgot, I got nominated as a member of the National Society of High School Scholars (scam?); I plan to do research with a professional doctor next summer and taking a class at Harvard or Yale (if I get in this program); I am writing a paper for the science competition and an essay for the writing competition(i hope I would win!!); finally, I am applying for a position in the cabinet of Junior State of America (again, I hope I would get in!). I do not plan to be on the sport team (not my thing!!) but a few clubs.

I understand that the top Ivy Leagues are the crapshoots, but I want to know if I am on the right track. Do you have any suggestion for me to improve?
