Am I too stupid to go to college?

GPA : 4.05 out of 5.0 weighted (pretty bad I know, that's like top 18%ish in my HS although our school does not rank,. I'm not very good at my humanities classes. But my grades show a very strong upward trend)

SAT: M:800, CR:660, WR: 690(or 650 if a college takes highest combined score)

SAT II's : Math Level II: 800, Chemistry: 800

AP's: BC Calculus-5, Chemistry-5, Statistics-5

-two time USA Mathematics Olympiad qualifier (AMC12 score: 129, AIME score: 9)
-American Regions Math League participant (scored a 7 out of 8 in the 2006 ARML, which is like top 50ish that year?)
- AMC (American Mathematics Competition) school winner/high scorer
- 3rd in my state (MA) math competition this year
- member of school math team (possibly captain this year)
- random volunteering/community service (60+ hours) for local non-profit organizations

With terrible grades, not-so-good SAT scores... can I at least go to some community college (or will that be too far of a reach) ? I will write my essay on how I'm just a waste of the limited supply of oxygen on this planet.
