What are my chances?

I'm in 10th Grade with an overall average GPA of 4.12 (soon to increase).
I am a boy scout, nearing Eagle scout rank, and will likely reach this rank by my early senior year.
I was wondering what you guys might estimate my chances to be on getting into these specific colleges:
Penn State, Dartmouth, Harvard, Duquesne, Caltech, MIT, and UPenn.
I have taken a total of 6 honors classes Freshman year, as well as 6 this year.
I will be taking AP Physics 1, AP Computer Science Principles, and 6-7 more honors classes next year.
I will take the SAT in late 11th grade.
So, what would you estimate my chances of getting into these colleges?
Thanks!

    Other than Penn State and Duquesne, the other schools on your list are some of the most competitive in the country. Even with perfect test scores and GPA, they are reaches for everyone.

    When you have SAT and SAT II scores, you'll be better able to predict if you would be a competitive applicant.
