How strong are my EC?
I have spent 3-4 hours on programming each weekday and 4-5 hours on the weekend for 3 years. I plan to major in computer engineering.
1. Programmed Applications: featured in Playstore a few times
2. Small Company/non-profit for my apps/programming
3. USACO/Competitive programming - finalist for USACO didn't make the team. I've done okay on competitive programming contests for college students, I've done pretty good on ones designed for high school
4. Blog about programming/computer science/computer engineering - gets 500 views per year
5. I also tutor my siblings on the weekend

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
I think your extracurricular profile is among the more competitive when it comes to computer science. It is clear that you have applied your knowledge and interest in computer science in many ways. While your extracurricular profile appears to focus only on comp sci which could possibly be a minor setback, it more importantly conveys your passion for programming and computers. I think that if you have a strong academic profile to complement it, you have a solid shot at competitive computer engineering programs.
