wow you have a ton of ECS! where in india do you live? my parents are from india- we go to visit relatives a lot, and none of my cousins have your kind of extra curriculurs!
ok sry to answer your question:
1. berkeley is a far reach. berkeley is a really competitive school- they are infamous for accepting very very few people out of state- so international is probably even harder, i'd assume? not sure though
2. don't know about ucsd
3. you'd probably get into indianna
4. umich...you have an ok shot
5. Uta and babson have never heard of them so can't answer
6. bu...probably not....possible though
7. NYU, you probably could get in because they are a school known for looking at extra curriculars a lot more than other schools... and they are a really, really diverse school so i'm sure they have a high international acceptance rate
8. uppenn and uva are probably nots. uppen is an ivy league school- to get into it you would need to be in the top 10 percent atleast. UVA is ranked equivalently to berkeley, and UMICH is just below them (but bareley).
9. usc- i don't know anything about it so i wouldn't be able to help you.

i'd say your best shots are at indiana and NYU.....
good luck!! and don't take anything i say completely a hundred percent for sure simply because this is only my opinion based on what i know about colleges- and i a myself am in 11th grade, so i am learning in this college process as well! good luck, and i hope you'll be in the US soon!
