Your scores are a little lacking for those three schools, especially for Columbia. Class rank is decent. But you're too vague in saying you have lots of extracurricular activity. That could very easily be a BAD thing. Schools aren't looking for a huge list of ECs, they're looking for dedication and distinction in a few.

It's not impossible but on the purely academics you're a little light across the board: class rank, GPA, tests scores. Your EC's aren't bad but I don't see anything that is going to make an adcom stop and say "Wow!"
