Excellent GPA, academics. Too many leadership positions - focus on what you enjoy.
I will warn you, you seem to be the standard asian applicant to Stanford. Make that application count. And try reposting this in the Stanford section of the CC board.

thanks..i'm planning to play up the musical theatre ECs because it's a big part of my life and although I live in the Bay Area, I'm the only non-Caucasian person in my musical theatre company. would that help?

does anyone know the Stanford application policies for ECs? do they force you to narrow your ECs down to a few major ones, or will they accept a page? ...since I'm a junior, I still have much to learn. haha.

I believe they do force you, but even if they don't I would reduce them in order to make it seem like you are only focused on certain ecs. I was in Teenage Republican Club and some other clubs, but on my application I only mentioned my top clubs and the ones I held a leadership position for more than one year. Just a thought.
