Do I have any chance of getting into an Ivy league university?

I have a 3.98 GPA, a 2150 on the SAT (horrible I realize, but I guess that's the best I could do :/), am vice president of National Honor Society, vice president of Students for Environmental Action, cross country and track varsity athlete, and am a member of Medical Careers Club, math league. science olympiad, and FATES (females for the advancement of technology engineering and science). I've taken all honors classes in high school (with the exception of two level 3 elective courses, which were mandatory for me to take), and am taking two AP classes this year with A's in them. As a senior next year I plan on taking 4 AP classes. I was invited to attend a People to people leadership forum on medicine at Johns Hopkins university, have taken a summer Health science honors course for non-credit at Tufts University, and also have 150+ hours of volunteering at local hospitals. I am assisting in a research clinic over the summer and also have an internship at Genzyme pharmaceutical corporation. I also have a part time job at Shaws supermarket lol. I've played the piano for 8 years and love it more than anything, and I have numerous portfolios with sketches I have done, which is also very important for me. Any help or advice would be appreciated, and please, be brutally honest with me. I do not want to head into the college admissions process with false hopes that I even stand a chance of getting into an ivy league (as you can tell, pre med is my life). Thank you very much.

Yes, but the People to People doesnt matter, and if your volunteering at local hospitals involves menial labor that doesnt matter either

There are no guarantees in life but you do have a pretty solid resume. Even if you aren't accepted into an Ivy, I'm pretty sure medical schools accept graduates even from lowly state schools... More
