What are my chances of getting into UC Santa Cruz or any other UC's?

So I am currently a senior in highschool and will be starting the application process soon. I am applying to a lot of schools that I think I have zero chance to get into. My GPA is a 3.83 and my UC GPA is a 3.76. I have taken a good amount of AP classes such as AP European History, AP Chemistry, AP US History, AP Language Composition, and I took an Honors English course in 10th grade. My SAT score is a little low though at only a 1670. And I'm currently doing community service at a local library now and will probably only have about 20-30 hours done by the time I apply. I also took 3 years of guitar. I am applying to UC Irvine, UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, and UCLA (because my Dad thinks because I'm black I will have a decent shot). I am in the top 9 percent of California applicants so I am gauanteed a spot on a UC campus not of my choosing if I get rejected by those I apply to. Honestly what do you guys think my chances are of getting into any of those schools? I am really hoping that Santa Cruz will accept me at least.
