What are my chances at getting accepted? (revised)?
and please excuse my grammar mistake in a previous post of mine. That's horribly embarrassing, considering I'm usually a stickler for grammar, and considering my college aspirations...
In addition, this post is slightly different than my previous posts, so if you're commenting again, please re-read it.

I am taking the SATs in January, but on the latest practice test I took, I got a 1880. I know, my score is pretty awful, and I am quite upset about it, but I am currently enrolled in an SAT prep course and I frequently take practice tests.

AP World History and AP Music Theory- 3 and 4
AP Comp. and AP U.S.- currently taking
The rest of my classes have all been honors, excluding health classes, a driving course, and 3 math courses (one was taken in middle school)

As far as essays are concerned, not to toot my own horn, but I've been told that I am a very good writer.
Schools I'm interested in are BU, BC, NYU, Emerson, Syracuse, Wellesley, Wesleyan, Brown, etc... and I would love to go to school in Boston.
I've wanted to go to an Ivy since I was a little girl (my dad went to Yale) but that sadly looks like it's out of reach for me. :(
I am looking to major in history, minor in music performance, and then go on to law school. Or possibly major in English. I'm not entirely sure yet. :)
What are my chances?
And does anyone have any suggestions for schools that would be willing to accept me?
Only nice, yet constructive criticism, if you don't mind. :)
