    UPenn and Brown are a bit of a reach. Why are you applying to BU? Their average GPA for accepted applicants is 3.45, way beneath your credentials. Villanova is not nationally ranked in US News & World Reports. They only make the regional rankings. I would only use them as your safety. You are a good match for BC and NYU. I would also suggest Tufts and Holy Cross as good matches.

    Upenn will be a reach, and maybe Brown. Everything else looks good. Take that ACT/SAT again

    i'm not completely sure that you'll get it with the SAT scores (i may be wrong), but with all your activities, skills, and other stuff, i'm sure you have a chance to get in. Just apply to those schools and you could possibly be accepted. good luck. :)

    You sound like a good candidate. Just apply and you'll never know.

    Now all you need to do is focus on your essays.
