You sound pretty successful in school. Colleges will also be looking for things such as extracurriculars and how you're involved in your community, things like that. Top schools obviously emphasize grades and test scores, but they also want to know who you are as a person. Sports, clubs, community service, and especially your essay are factors that some people ddon't think about before they apply to college. Good luck, hope this helps!
