What are my chances at UCLA, UC Berkley, USC, and Boston College?

I would be estatic to be accepted into any of these schools. I'm currently a junior in high school & here's my information :) Oh, and I'm in a fairly decently ranking high school. I know I'm not pushing it by taking six AP's senior year, but I'm going to try to apply for jobs and take work experience because my family needs the money. And, I'm thinking one less AP class senior year won't make too much of a difference. (Or at least, I hope so.) Planning on getting 4/5's on my AP tests :) All the AP classes I'm taking/going to take: European History American History Civics Calc AB/BC Spanish English Language/Composition English Literature Chemistry Biology OR Physics Physcology OR Statistics If I get all A's this year, which I'm planning to do, my GPA will be: unweighted GPA to a 3.71 weighted GPA to a 4.29 & cap weighted GPA to 4.04 My SAT score should be around 710-30 Math, 740-750 Verbal, 650-670 Writing. I haven't taken it yet, but that's what my practice tests have indicated. I play the piano, and I'm testing into level 8 this year. I volunteer at an animal shelter, am an active participant in Key club (although I'm not an officer in anything), CSF, and prom/class committee. I've secured an intership at a lawyer's firm for next summer and I plan to volunteer at my brother's group. (It's a group that helps mentally disabled children, but mostly I'd be working with my brother during therapy lessons or at events the group hosts.) What are my chances, realistically, for these schools? Am I aiming too high? If so, what should I be aiming for? Thank you! @Ed. Seriously? That's just rude. I've had plenty of real world experience, I know it's hard and it sucks, but I can handle it.

Don't rely on your stats. I had a 4.1 by the end of my junior year, an 1820 on my SAT's, a killer personal statement, was the president/ vp of a diverse group of 7 extracurriculars, i was employed through all my years of high school, volunteered over 300hrs, and I had very rigorous courses throughout my 4 years and I...
