What are my chances of getting into UC Berkeley?

I am currently a junior attending a school in California that offers school the IB Program but I'm not doing it.
GPA: 4.3 weighted, 4.0 unweighted
SAT:1190 (first time no studying) but I'm planning to study and get a 1400 or higher

Freshmen year:
Geometry, concert band, marching band, spanish 2, biology, honors English 1, health/CCP, winter Drumline, jazz band

Sophomore year: Ap euro, honors English 2, honors algebra 2/ trig, chemistry, Spanish 3, french 1, wind Ensemble, jazz band, marching band

Junior year: Pre-Calc Honors, IB Music SL, IB Spanish SL, French 3, AP/IB US History, AP/IB Lang, Marching Band, Jazz Band
I'm not taking a science this year and that may or may not have been a bad choice, I'm planning to major in something with languages, maybe a language or linguistics.

Senior year: AP Biology, Ap government, Ap calculus, Ap Spanish, IB English literature HL, IB french HL, wind Ensemble, marching band, jazz band

Extracurriculars: band(I may apply for leadership in marching band next year), link crew(im going to apply for leadership position next year), after school tutoring for service hours.

What else should I do for showing leadership?
Should I apply for national honors society?
Should I join key club? These will all be my senior year so I'm not sure if it will make an impact.

Band seems to be lowering me GPA, but I've had straight A's, I'm not sure if that'll be the case my senior year but we'll see.
