What are my chances at Johns Hopkins, Stanford, and Northwestern in their biomedical engineering programs?

Math: 740
Verbal: 770

Writing: 800
Biology M: 750
Math IIC: 680

ACT: 33

Class rank: 5 out of 278
GPA: 4.5 weighted, 3.76 nonweighted

APs 5/Bio 5/US History 4/Calculus AB 5/Language Comp. 5/European History

Eagle Scout
Luteran Living Faith Award
Gold Service Award (100 or more community service hours)
AP Scholar With Distinction
4.0 Honor Roll

Community Computer Classes Coordinator
Scholastic Bowl President
Philosophy Club Moderator
Varsity Track
JV Cross-Country
National Honors Society Tutor
Literary Magazine Layout Manager
Model UN Representative
Comedy Improv member

I'm concerned that since I have gotten B's in my math classes in the past two and a half years (last year was AP, the two years before it were honors classes), my chances of being accepted to an engineering program would be reduced.

could someone please respond?

wow, great resume... um, your Math IIC is low, esp. for engineering program. keep in mind about 9% of students who take Math IIC get 800's... you should at least be 780+. other than that, things look great. and by all means apply for stanford.
