    Well I think these "what are my chances" posts have become very trite, especially among the general types of people who post them- accomplishment-wise I mean (high gpa, taken most ap classes, relatively high SAT scores, hundreds of hours of community service, tons of clubs and sports)- and that's why you're not really getting much of a response. What exactly do you expect as a response from your list? Sure you'll most likely make all the UCs and USC, although Stanford is a reach- but even this statement is based on no validity other than the trend that the person who reads it would think, and you yourself would have already pondered, especially if you frequent this board.
