How hard is it to get into MIT?

I have straight A's in all AP/honors classes, and got over 2300 on the SAT's, but I was wondering how much emphasis they put on extracurriculars? I have lots of community service, a job, NHS, all 3 seasons of track each year, and a couple other little things, but do they require you to be a captain or president of some club or sport? Basically, would it be worth it to apply there or do they discount immidiately anyone who does not have some leadership role in an extracurricular activity?

No, your ECs are really good with the job, community service, and track. I think you'll be fine, as long as your SAT math score is high enough. The middle 50% of MIT applicants score 720-800 in math: it's just amazing to me that 25% or more of MIT applicants have an 800 for the math section of the SAT.
