What are my chances for getting into a top school?

I am a caucasian female and am applying to grade 8 to andover, exeter, groton, st.paul's, brooks, taft, deerfield and I will need financial aid
ssat: overall 93%; high math and verbal with a slightly lower reading
I take latin as my language and have all A's in my classes except for an A- in woodshop and all of my teachers like me. I go to one of the better public schools in New England where a lot of people apply to boarding schools

For my hook I've lived in Asia for seven years. Two years in tokyo and 5 years in singapore where I learned madarin for all 5 years and I've been able to acclimate to America pretty well and I also have a twin who does most of the same things as me and she got a 92% overall on the ssat. I'm interested in pursuing engineering as a future career and I usually tell the interviewers that.

Extracurriculars: I take bass lessons and have been playing since the fifth grade, I've been doing community service in a league for 1 1/2 years and was in girl scout for five years before that, I quilt over the summer and have been doing so for four years, I've played softball for 6 years and I now play it all year round in the fall, winter and spring leagues and played baseball over the summer, I've started doing crew as well, I'm also in the latin play (but i'm a flying monkey, but at least I tried out ), I also do a summer camp where you hike, kayak, swim, etc.

All of my interviews have gone pretty well, in St. Paul's they strongly reccommended me to apply and Andover said that if my academic abilities were strong then they saw no reason why I wouldn't do well there, and Brooks was very impressesed as well. Chances?
