Ib predicted scores and gpa - needs guidance/help/tips
Hi guys i am an international student and have done pretty much all my education in german and french. Two years ago i switched to an english school to follow my dream to study in the US.
I am enrolled in the IB diploma and this are my predicted score (my school gives very accurate predictions)
Biology HL : 6/7
Geography HL : 7
History HL : 7
German language A HL: 6
Math SL : 7
English language A SL : 6
The 3 extra points: idk yet but probably 2/3
For without the extra point im at about a 39/40
My act score is about 32-35 (note my english section is not that lit because of my lack of education in english but its hopefully good enough (i have the toefl and stuff))
EC: volunteers weekly for a couple of hours to teach young migrants from eritrea to teach them math and german as well as being there for them

My gpa is quite the problem. My first semester of IB was not that great and so i improved greatly (my gpa increased 0.5) i think i needed time to adapt to the school. Now i am at about a 3.5 which is very high for my school in the ib diploma, but not the best tho. It puts me in the top 15% i'd say, which is as I know quite low.
Should I apply to Berkley, UCLA, Kenyon college, ivy league schools, stanford and UC or are my scores way too low? What do you guys think I should try to improve the most?
Thank u for guiding me i am a bit confused of the American application process ahah
