I think we're tired of hearing about Stanford EA hopefuls. Yeah you look good, but so does everyone else. Not taking SAT II might hurt. Your ECs make me angry, along with your 10 APs. I mean, usually I think of athletes like you as being stupid. Do you ever sleep, or do you just go to an easy school? The fact that you play all those sports could help. On the other hand, I don't see any direction in your ECs. Meaning, unless you want to become a football coach or work at Burger King your entire life. What do you want to major in? (You can tell I have no idea what your chance are)

I want to major in pol. sci

and the school i go to has been ranked in the top 50 public schools in the nation

and my key to sleep is not taking notes, so there is little to study, which allows for more sleep
