A different System, therefore what are my chances?

I study in a differently formated school. Assuming that most people are more aware of American schooling and grading, could you tell me how I would fare if I had a chance to Ivies such as Upenn, Cornell, Dartmouth.

I believe my so called GPA would be: 3.9
Extra Curriculars: Football Team (Soccer in USA) for 4 yrs
Rugby Team for 3 yrs
Model United Nations, taken part 3 times
Junior Achievement program
Community service 7 yrs
Duke of Edinburgh gold

Everything we do is considered AP classes apparently so I am doing
English Lit

so they're all AP I am guessing?

I study in a British school so I was wondering if there would be anything I could do to improve my chance into these universities.

I will be taking my SAT I this Jan or May
and SAT II consequently.

Thank you guys

    Only A-level courses are anything like AP courses, so I assume you take four A-levels.

    Cornell, Dartmouth, UPenn are reaches for anyone even if you scored 2200+ on the SAT (or 33+ on the ACT)
