My chances at getting into competitive schools

Hi everyone, I am in the class of 2021 and I am wondering my chances at getting into competitive schools like: Boston College, Boston University, Holy Cross, Florida, GW, Wake Forest, Colgate, Notre Dame, UVA, Bucknell, etc. Here is some info about me:

-GPA: 4.3 (we do not have unweighted/weighted we use our own scale)
-We do not have class rank, but I am in a society for top academic performers specific so my school.
-Sports: 4 year varsity player + club sport for 8 years
-Extracurriculars: Model UN, School newspaper (senior year president, but held exec board position for 3 years), Business club (treasurer), peer mentor program, math league, NHS, Science NHS, History NHS, own my own Redbubble shop (have sold over 300 products), over 100+ hours of community service.
-APs graduated with: 5 (can't take until junior year)
-SAT/ACT: I am taking it in August, but based on practice tests it will most likely be in the mid 1400s.
-Intended major: Business/ Finance
-Ethnicity (if this helps): Caucasian (European and Middle Eastern)

If anyone could help me determine what type of school Wake would be for me, that would help. I am thinking probably a reach, but it is definitely a school I would be very happy to attend.
