I am just curious to know what my chances are to be accepted into: UPENN Wharton ED1, and NYU Stern ED2

School: Private School in Princeton, NJ (Hun School) its a pretty well esteemed school i guess
SAT (superscore): 2370 (800 in math, 800 in writing, 770 in critical reading)
i still need to take subject tests
GPA: around a 3.6 to 3.7 (3.8 freshman and junior year.. sophomore year was rough my friend committed suicide, lost my grandfather, and my sister was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.. i dont know how colleges will view this) (everything at my school is unweighted, no weighted gpas.) we are based off of an average system though, so it is a 90 average.
course rigor: AP Calc AB and AP stat as a sophomore. This year as a junior i am taking AP Calc BC and AP Euro. Next year I will be taking AP Spanish, AP Art History, Multi-variable Calculus. I know it isnt like over the top but private schools arent the same as public schools when it comes to the rigor of ap classes. i got a 4 on ap calc ab last yr. my school doesnt offer ap econ but i have taken regular. and honors for my core non ap classes

-I am an SAT and math tutor
-I have my own non profit organization. i started it by myself. it is a registered company and everything that helps artisans that are in poverty, with this i have tons and tons of community service hours. i go to small villages in different countries to make this possible. (its kind of a big deal i think)
-I have played varsity tennis at my school and was ranked in the top 30 in the state.. i am probably gonna get an award for this year from my coach.
-I played on the atlantic regional cricket team and we place 3rd in nationals. its kinda unique.

i will have strong essays. i have a lot to write about, and i am good writer.

haha this doesnt seem like too much compared to other kids on here.. but yeah that is what i have. im kinda banking on my SAT scores to take me far, and also the fact that i have my own company that helps the community showing my prowess in business

i am also wondering if i am just wasting time in applying ed1 to wharton.. will i probs get rejected? is it better for me to apply ed1 to nyu stern?? i guess what i am asking is will there be a significant difference in my chances of being accepted by stern if i apply ed1 or ed2
