What are my chances of being accepted at Brown University?

I am a senior right now and soon to be applying. It has been my dream for some time to get go to Brown University. Here is the foundation of my credentials: I have taken or currently am taking the hardest curriculum offered. This includes: Every honors class available, four years of advanced Spanish, AP European History, AP United States History, AP Calculus, AP English, and AP Government. My GPA is currently a 98.7 out of 100. I am ranked 5th in my class. As for after school activities and awards: I am a member of the Debate Team, Math Team, Future Business Leaders of America, Jazz Band, Chorus, Select Men's Choir, Theater Arts Program, National Honors Society. I am the highest rank of Altar Server at my Catholic Parish. I have been for roughly 10 years now. I have been taking private Piano lessons for roughly 9 years now. I also take vocal lessons and I am the coordinator and conductor of a Bell Choir for Elderly Women at the local Assisted Living Home. I have also managed holding a part time job for over two years now as a dietary aid at the same Assisted Living Home. Awards and Honors: First Place Novice Team, as well as many speaker awards in Debate Team. First Place in a State-wide Website Development competition in Future Business Leaders of America. First place Business Plan in a State-wide competition in Future Business Leaders of America Valedictorian of my Catholic and Private Middle School. Third place in a Computer Problem Solving competition in Future Business Leaders of America. Music student of the year. I have obtained many medals at Solo and Ensemble competitions at Rhode Island College for piano playing. I will be participating in a Mathematics Competition at WPI this November. I played the second leading male in last year's Theater Arts production of "Chicago." My SAT Scores: Mathematics: 560 Reading: 610 Writing: 620 *** I am currently getting tutored in SAT Mathematics privately. My score is expected to break 700 this time around, as I was having an off-day last time. I am also taking a private SAT course for writing and reading. I plan on taking the US History, Math Level 1, and Literature subject tests in October. Alright, well I think that covers everything. I may have forgotten some things. Anyway, if anyone here has any knowledge of the school, let me know what kind of shot you think I have of getting accepted!

Your activities seem great. You aren't like the other applicants who have somewhat random activities. You seem to be really strong in music, especially singing, and you are also very accomplished. That's good. The bad part is, you only have a few more opportunities to take both the SAT I and your SAT Subject Tests... More
