Will NYU accept me - international-

I'm an international student - Dubai. I have all A and A+ except two Cs in Arabic and Islamic, which is good for me considering I don't know Arabic that well but have to take both subjects in Arabic at local standard. I'm going into senior year (2015-2016)

SAT Scores:
M: 640 + W:640 + CR:640 = 1920
TOEFL: 112 out of 120
GPA: 3.67

I'm planning to do the Literature and Biology subject tests after summer.

I've done 4 shows with a theatre company and have volunteered with them for their children shows and rehearsals, which go on for 12 hours at a time. I am also going to start logging community hours during the school year. I run a blog- not that popular, but also have a personal website that has everything that I've done - work wise. I was class rep the previous year.

I'm working on two original novels and love to write and read, and am currently the first student at my school to take two subjects at that are supposed to run at the same time, so the second class is me self-learning. I really want to do AP/HON?/IB but my school doesn't provide them. I'll be doing the free online AP Lit from edX. I've done a couple MOOCs online and participate in the annual short story and poetry writing competition, but have never won.

I can speak fluently in English, and a little bit of Arabic and Urdu. I'm trying to learn piano on my own, which is proving to be hard, but I'm getting there. I've gone to two MUN meets, and hopefully two more. What else? What should I do to make sure I get into NYU//NYUAD?
