Grades - Straight A's
Will take AP ENGLISH, CHEM, and CALC (all that my school offers) Will also self teach AP Physics C and German III (actually, the German is from a college that sends me the material). Hopefully this will show some good study skills and a drive to learn.
Am taking a college-level type course on the Bible at church (has homework and is taught by very educated men.) Should I include?
Love to play Ultimate Frisbee, but no official sports.

I want to be a physics major, and i realize that my ECs do not reflect that. That is because there is little opportunity at my school for science EC's.
Not a URM, legacy, or poor kid, but being from small town Minnesota, life is very different, and I just can't do research and stuff cuz of lack of programs and time. (our band is known throughout the region for its excellence) Parents are eduacated.
EA or RD with better SAT scores? (Hopefully)
Could I maybe recieve a percentage?

I want to add that I have been selected by my school to moderate a debate between state senators for the upcoming election. I also had a part-time job teaching percussion to a younger kid. I know it's still a long shot. Any comments?

Are you kidding, dude? You sound like a well qualified Harvard applicant, and I am a critical person.
One thing I see lacking so far. A passion or drive for something. Do you have one, or did I miss it?

Sorry, yeah I would definelty consider music a passion of mine. The drumline in probably the best in the state, and i spend my life (40 hours a week) at band and band events for 3 months. Jazz band is also very intensive, although I admit I am not very good at it. I spend a lot of time practicing for it, and I drum at church. I know that marching band is an unusual EC, but here in small town Minnesota, it is my passion. Anyone else have an opinion on my chances?
