i don't know much about the admissions of the schools you listed, but i think that you could get into harvard or yale or something. your gpa/rank is a bit low, but your sat is good and being hispanic will def help. and not everyone has figure skated for 7 yrs. take some sat iis though.

Everything looks good but your class rank. You have a good shot at your reaches.

Same as above, you have a good shot at your reaches. Your Hispanic status and ECs, particularly the fig skating (which seems impressive - focus on this?) really set you apart as someone a bit different. My money's on your side of the table.
