Harvard and several other U.S. schools have a <1% greek life participation rate - so if you’re worried about fraternity guys, it’s fairly easy to find universities that do not host fraternities and sororities.
Greek life participation rates can be found on the university’s “student life” profile on U.S. News and World Report

India CBSE applicant
Class 10 : A1,A1,A2,A2,B1 in Maths,Science, SocialScience, English and Sanskrit (sad ik)
Class 12 : A1 A1 A1 A1 A1 predicted in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science and English

In addition to this I’ve been very active in Kaggle competitions which attract people from all levels ( undergrad, professionals, academics) for data science and AI projects and I have fairly good positions on several as I have mentioned in my PS and scientific conference associated competitions (NeurIPS, ECCV, etc very popular cs conferences) as well. (these comps were associated with Google, Stanford, CMU, OpenAI, Lyft, Computer Vision Companies, the likes and I recieved sub 50 or 100 rank in ones with nearly >2000 participants)
In competitive programming, I have a good score on INOI second stage in India for International Olympiad in Informatics qualifying for Asia Pacific Informatics Olympiad and good score on USACO Gold last year as well(2019). I have qualified for google codejam round 2 this year and facebook hackercup round 3, master on Codeforces.

Just received word that I am not even invited for Cambridge maths interview and many users here including myself believe that it might be cause of how intensively my past achievements(and possible motivations conveyed in PS too?) were focussed on CS. I did mention that maths course is appropriate for me because of how broad and deep the syllabus was and how it would help me gain a deep foundational perspective but I guess they are just more interested in keeping to the traditional maths applicants.
Pinning my hopes on MIT, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, Caltech, Berkeley, CMU, UCLA (first options) and some others.
Would appreciate any opinions on how to portray myself in my essays better or generally improve my app
