Can i get into an ivy league school, MIT/stanford, oxford, or HEC paris?

I am a sophomore at a virginia high school. I am from tunisia, north africa. Thus, i speak arabic, french, english, and i am learning german. I am taking ap/honor classes and i have a gpa of about 4. I plan on doing well on my SAT. I will have good recommendations. I am involved in the Muslim student association, future business leaders of america, DECA, french honor society, and chemistry honor society. I am on the ultimate frisbee team and varsity soccer. Next year i will continue taking ap/honor classes and i will be an officer in the french honor society and the president of the MSA, and an officer in the National honor society. By the end of high school i will have an advanced diploma and a civic seal, for all my community service work. This summer i am planning on doing an internship in paris at pricewaterhousecoopers and another internship the following year at a business firm. I am planning on studying business at wharton (u penn) or any other top school.

I need specific advice on what i should do. Will my cultural background help? Should i visit the campus? I need advice!!

    It sounds like you just want reassurance. Of course you can. You still have two more years to prove yourself, too. Just keep working hard and having a positive attitude, and things will work out.
