Thanks for any potential help

I'm a male, Puerto Rican, 23, Antioch College student, who is a double
legacy. I received a 1360 on my SATS, had an 81 avg at the Bronx High
School of Science, have volunteered twice in Guatemala, and once as a
teacher's assistant at a school for special needs kids in Ohio.

Antioch doesn't give grades but the majority of my evaluations are above
good to excellent, however 2 or 3 are negative. I was elected to Comcil
(the community governing council) twice and have written many feature
cover stories for the school paper.

I produced large scale (3,000+ in attendance) electronica shows aka raves
but in very established venues in New York City for over a year and
received writeups in Newsday (cover of part 3) and magazines.

I also received a UFT Creative Writing award in high school and got 3s in
AP Art and and English.

I've done highly praised work in my philosophy classes but the dept here
is badly understaffed so I'm going to apply to be a philosophy major and
try to enter Cornell through that angle.

So guys what's the deal everyone can I get in?? Any suggestions? Any
help is quite appreciated.

Many thanks..
