Here are some things you can do to optimize your chances:

- Expand your EC list by adding Tier 1 and 2 activities and doing activities that relate to your spike

- Write stellar essays like these

- Ask your teachers and mentors well in advance if they will write a recommendation for you. Provide them with a brief outline or resume to guide their writing.

Hope this helps!
