You're totally chill, don't sweat it. I would find it hard to believe if you were rejected from all of those schools. The one question I have though is why only one AP so far... did you take the most challening curriculum possible your junior year? But otherwise you're totally chill I think, those are all awesome schools and again, as I said, I would find it hard to believe if none of them accepted you.
