Your chances for Schulich really depend on the remaining two marks in your top 6. I'd say you're pretty guaranteed for the remaining programs.

1. No work experiences
2. No leadership/team working positions
3. No student government? Too unpopular to get elected?
4. No varsity sports?? Not even sports clubs?

I'm glad that you know your place and that you're not wasting your money by applying to Ivey or Queen's.

Although what CMA said was kinda harsh, I do agree.
none of those activities have substance in them that can show off much of the qualities they are looking for. such as attending work shops, that doesn't show anything.

I agree with what onlymatthew said, you do have a chance and I totally disagree with what CMA said. You have a lot of volunteer experience which makes your supplementary for schulich good. Just make sure that the remaining two courses that will be in your prerequisite increase your average. For the two courses aim for a (92+)

Good luck

Don't let 'others' discourage you from applying to the university of your choice. From what i've heard from reading previous posts is that Schulich does not even bother with your supplementary form if you pass their average cutoff. So, if its not too late try to bump up the english mark and do well on your remaining two courses. Keeping in mind that you do exceptionally well on the prequisite courses for the programs your applying to. Your ECs may not show much leadership qualities. But hey, you still have time to commit yourself to clubs outside of school, if not in school. Good luck! (:
