What colleges should I be looking at?

I'm a junior and my GPA is about a 3.8 unweighted. I took 3 APs this year and every one of my classes has been honors. My SAT score was 2020. I am an involved member in various clubs, such as CAD (Computer Architectural Design) Club, French Club, and SMAC (Student Movement Against Cancer), and founded a group in my high school which raises money for children in Africa by collecting old sneakers. I also run track. For the past two summers, I have been accepted to and participated in a 4-week college prep course at NJIT University. The first year mainly focused on chemistry, and the second on physics. For this, I also earned 6 college credits. I occasionally volunteer at a group home in a nearby urban area, helping out abandoned teenagers. For one year, I volunteered at a children's hospital and am planning on going on a Habitat for Humanity trip this summer. I have thought about schools such as Boston College, Cornell, Berkley, and Georgia Institute of Technology.

By the looks of it, seems like you can go wherever you'd like. Anything is better then nothing, just remember that though.

If all that volunteer work is what makes you happy, you might be better off devoting yourself full-time to volunteering after high school. Otherwise, yeah, those schools look good.
