    I think you probably need to raise your ACT a little to have a better shot. Your GPA is great, but I don't know if your courseload is above average for students who get accepted to USC. If you raise your ACT 2-3 points I think it would greatly improve your chances. However, I don't know much about applying to architecture and computer science so don't take my word for it. I'd say work hard in all of your senior classes and try to retake the ACT and you'll have a solid chance.
