Community college student with weird situation in need of transfer advice?

I have an interesting education history to say the least. I attended three, yes three, different high schools (two British schools in The Netherlands, one American high school) and came out of that experience with a 3.4 GPA, theatre, music, softball, community service as extracurriculars and a 4 on my AP World History exam. However, I only completed high school through my sophomore year due to all of the moving, constantly switching systems and health problems. I received a GED at 16 years old and scored in the top percentile. (95th or 98th?) In that time, I also worked a job. I am now a freshman at Northern Virginia Community College with a 3.7 or 4.0 depending on how my two remaining finals go. I will be a part of the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society next semester where there will be ample opportunities for community service and campus involvement, and I will be active in my school's newspaper along with being a finalist (or winner) in a singing competition my school holds for a 4000 dollar scholarship/ "prize". This summer, I am planning on doing a 6 week scholarship program with my church where I will serve the poor. I also am a born writer and know I can write an essay that will serve to any school's mission statement while representing myself well. I plan on pursuing Journalism actively at whatever school I end up transferring too. I have only very recently turned 17 years old and have worked very hard to get to where I am today. However, I do not want to stay in community college for long. There is a two year automatic transfer agreement with Virginia schools if students maintain a 3.0 or over, but my sights are set on transferring for my sophomore year (Fall 2011). I so far am planning on applying to Boston College, Boston University, University of North Carolina, James Madison University and Virginia Commonwealth University, though I am also looking at Temple University and any other school in Boston that would be a good fit for me. I am sure that, with advice, time and college visits, this list will narrow down and it will become clearer to me. I have yet to take my SAT's, but will be doing so before transfer deadlines! I am wondering if anyone has any insight on my standing for any of the above schools, or advice on how to go about a successful transfer as it is a highly competitive endeavor? Thank you!
