I'm a junior at a competitive Chicago area public school. My dream is to either go to NYU USC, or one of the UC's. I got a 31 on the April 3rd ACT, and hope to increase it to a 32 or 33 next time I take it. My PSAT was a 194, and I am taking the SAT on May 1. I have gotten almost all A's since my sophomore year, however Freshman year I slacked off and got mostly Bs and a couple of C's, which brings down my GPA and class rank. Currently I am 40/350, and should move up to around 30 at the end of the semester. My GPA (5 point scale) is a 4.9 weighted a 4.3 unweighted. I am taking AP US History, Psych, and English Language this year, and AP CalcAB, and English Lit next year. I have been in mostly honors classes, but a few regular ones (once again, freshman year) I'm also taking an AP equivilent Chemistry class at a community college over the summer. For extracurriculars I've done:
Band (I play trombone)
National Honor Society
Church Youth Group
District Honor Band
All Conference Honor Band
Camp Counsleur (3 Summers)
Volunteering (200 Hours+)
I was also elected to the French Honor Society, was section leader, and got Academic and Music varsity letters.
So what do you think? Do I have a shot at NYU, USC, or any of the UC's? Any thing I can do to improve my chances?

incredibly, I applied to exactly all of those schools, no more, no less, and got in to each one, so here's my opinion.
My extracc were almost as good as yours, i dont know your sat or sat 2 scores so i cannot tell, but if your sats are above 1350 and have 3 sat 2s in the 700s, you are definitely gonna get into at least a few UCs, and have fair shots at either private school. What is your major?
well, looking good so far

I want to do a History major, and possibly pre-med.
