I will be applying for MIT RSI this year.
I am a junior studying advanced physics (college freshman/soph level), Cal B/C (I know both when I was a sophmore), and C++ programming.
I am the head of Sci/Math Soc, organizing a lot of science events.
Physics Olypiad participant.
Working with my school's physics teacher as EC.
Vice head of computer club.
Suck at sport.
Okay at music

Could you tell me what are my chances of getting into RSI or in the future, MIT??

What are RSI's standards for their applicants? (thinking about applying next year)

Jollyapplepie, my AP Physics teacher is the RSI Director of Admissions, and in class he told us that the students that get into RSI are way smarter than the smartest people that my school has produced, and my school is severely competitive. (about 30 National Merit Semi-Finalists in each graduating class of 220) He said that on average, people who get in take calculus in tenth grade. Considering that RSI is considered the most prestigious summer program in the world (possibly), its no wonder that it attracts only the best.

However, someone in my grade (one of his students) did get in and she is in precalculus honors as a junior. She is in AP bio and AP physics along with Precalc Honors, AP Spanish, and other stuff as well. So, what Im saying is that as long as you have the passion to get in, its worth a try.
