Hi everyone! I'm a junior and I'm applying EA for Harvard and Yale/Princeton next year. Here are my stats:

GPA: 4.51 by end of junior year, unweighted 4.0
SAT: 2230 superscored (710M, 720R, 800W, 12 essay) -- concerned about this....
ACT: 33 (35E, 33M, 34R, 30S, 8E) retaking for 34
PSAT: 219
Freshman year (none offered)
Sophomore year
-AP World (5-only offered), pretty much self studied this because we did nothing in class
Junior year
-AP US History, AP Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, AP English Language, AP Studio Art (all solid As first semester)
Senior year (prospective)
-AP Government, AP Biology, AP English Literature, AP Studio Art, AP Calculus

Honors courses:
english freshman and sophomore years, algebra II sophomore year, chemistry sophomore year, history freshman year

Uhhh extracurriculars
-founded my own organization called HOPE which sends supplies such as clothing, toiletries, bedding, etc. to Latin American countries. We began with an orphanage in Haiti and branched out to Costa Rica this year. It all began after the 2010 earthquake there. Have done many events at school and at the summer camp where I work as a counselor/administrative assistant. We've also started clubs in elite private schools across the country (which send students to Harvard/ivies every year, so they'll be familiar with that). We started working with Feed My Starving Children, a famous organization which is now helping us get our supplies to Latin America. We are meeting with the president of it soon!
-very avid artist
-won several national contests (ex: ravsak - first place)
-some of my paintings are being exhibited right now at a nearby, well-known university
-yearbook editor in chief for 3 years for the whole school
-summer job working as an administrative assistant/counselor
-worked with mentally disabled children 9th-10th-12th grades, teaching them to get active and play sports. i got my friends to do this too (isn't this what they're looking for? like making the people around you better?)
-editor of key club 3 years
-vice president of National art honor society
-varsity tennis team, treasurer of Israel advocacy club, very active NHS member, national spanish honor society, etc other things

Assuming i write a very strong essay too, and get good recs, what do you think my chances are for EA? And is my SAT okay? Thanks everyone and good luck!
