this may sound naive/immature/stupid but what does it take to get into any ivy, but more specifically upenn, cornell, princeton? I'm a senior, and i thought i had a good idea of what it takes, but after reading about all these ppl who got deferred with AMAZING scores/e.c.'s/etc. i just don't know anymore.

The right Adcom reading your application. That's what it takes.

it takes a visible passion for something and a continuation of that passion throughout your highschool career...some use sports, some music, some leadership...they're not looking for boring kids!

Some luck, and some normal-ness (they don't want a bunch of pompous kids walking around campus).
