What are my chances of getting into Columbia?

Hi I'm a Caribbean student looking to apply to Columbia as my dream school.

I scored 1530 on my SATs, and have scores of 740, 760, and 790 in Math 1 Math 2 and Physics respectively. My school doesn't do GPA (but they provide a transcript and recommendations)
I'm not sure about my extra curriculars though
I played table tennis throughout the first five years of secondary school (making the national team every year and winning numerous (I mean, with no joke, at least one hundred awards from this sport)
I volunteered at summer camps, played the steelpan (national instrument) at some of our university's functions, coordinated school events, was a prefect (leadership roles), sang in my church choir, taught confirmation classes at church.
I placed 9th in the Caribbean region in Mathematics in my fifth year, after my CSEC exams
I'm taking a gap year currently, and working as a teacher at a private primary school.

With all this in mind what are my chances of getting into Columbia?

    Nice to see a fellow Caribbean on this site! I'm no expert, but your stats seem pretty strong. If possible, apply EA, but you seem like an interesting person, the kind Ivies want. I wish you the best of luck!

    Thank you so much. I also won a national scholarship. Does this help the cause?
