Acceptance at Ivey, Queen's Commerce, and Schulich

Hi, I'm trying to figure out whether or not I'd be a good candidate for these programs, and if so, how competitive would I be. I know at my school I rank pretty high in terms of academics, but then I see people on this forum with like 98% averages and a long list of ECs and that gets me worried. Here are my qualifications (I'm currently a grade 12 student).

Grade 11 Average: 96.8%

EC's of past 2 years (gr. 11 and 12):

- Debate team (currently Co-Captain)
- DECA (currently President)
- SOMA (Southern Ontario Model UN Assembly)
- Student council (grade 11, executive)
- Jazz band (11)
- Co-host of 30 hour famine (grade 11)
- Student tutor for French (11)
- Track and Field
- Badminton team
- Founder of Young Entrepreneur's Club (grade 11, now defunct)
- Link crew (helping new grade 9's get used to the high school environment)

Other stuff:
- Started my own business (Euphony Music) that provides music lessons to youth
Check me out at www.euphonymusic.ca! :)
- Participated with the Summer Company program (run by the Gov't of Ontario)

Awards and Distinctions:
- Highest average for the grade (grade 11 year)
- DECA Regionals top 10 in both the oral presentation and written exam
- Participated in the Fryer, Galois and Hypatia math contests
- Honour roll since grade 9
- Multitude of subject awards (highest average in the course for the semester).

Let me know whether or not I have a competitive portfolio. I'm normally a confident guy, but when I see random people posting their 98 averages that worries me a little.
