Do I have a shot at UW-Madison, UW-Seattle, Boston College (ED)?

Any insight would be great!

GPA: 3.3/3.4 (UW/W) Big time upward trend during junior and senior year. Pretty solid course load w/ 5 APs.

SAT: 1330 ---- EBRW-710 M-620

ECs: Not to go into too much detail, large amounts of volunteering which I have really enjoyed, 4 years of sports, job, student gov.

Super optimistic about my letters of rec, and all of my essays. Also, if it helps, my HS sends tons of kids to very highly ranked schools every year.

I'm applying for majors in the school of education, not because it may be less competitive, my interest is actually in said field.

These are some real high reaches, and I'm not optimistic about them, but figured I would shoot my shot. I'm in at UIUC, Purdue and a couple others, so no need to sugar coat, I'm already pretty happy with my choices. Do I have a shot at any of these three?

    At my kids' school, Naviance shows that no one there gets into BC without a GPA over 3.5. Madison wouldn't be likely, either. But you already have some good choices so maybe your application is especially good.

    "I'm in at UIUC, Purdue"

    Are you in-state for either of these? These are great schools. If you are out of state, are these affordable for you?

    "I'm already pretty happy with my choices."

    With good reason! Congratulations on your acceptances to this point.
