Ok, I've been delaying this for awhile, but I think I have to start getting some serious opinions. So here are my stats along with projected numbers on retakes. I'd really appreciate if you could rate my chances percentage wise using both my current stats and projected stats. Thanks in advance.
Top 10% in class (but lower portion of top 10%)
SAT 770 Verbal 660 Math (projected: 1530 based on two recent practice scores of 1570 and 1590...trying to be conservative)
SAT II Writing 790, SAT II US History 690, SAT II Math IIC 620 (projected: 710).
AP scores: Psychology 5, World History 4, US History 4, English Language 4
AP Calc AB
AP European History (Independent Study)
AP US Government
AP Humanities (mixture of English and History. Geared towards the Lit exam).
So far I've taken the hardest schedule possible at my school with all Honors and AP's and will have taken 7 AP Classes, and at least 10 AP exams by the end of this year. Extra-curriculars are basically average with the sole exception of 1. I founded and currently run a baseball magazine in my school which comes out bi-weekly. I've been doing this since freshman year. As far as awards go, they're also fairly average but I'm currently a National Merit Semi-Finalist, which must count for something. Here are the schools I plan to apply to:
University of Rochester
The College of New Jersey
University of Puget Sound
I'd appreciate any comments on my chances at these institutions.

In everywhere. With a scholarship. Seriously.

Pick some more Reaches. If you can get that 1450+, you're in everywhere, bud.

Go for Stanford man. Stanford, Harvard and Yale will all consider you seriously.

Hmm, any other opinions? Does AA really make that big of a difference? And would it matter that my grades tend to fluctuate from mp to mp? I'm just feeling a little cautious since I'd assumed I'd have little chance at Dartmouth and Brown.

I agree with Alexandre. Yes, AA is huge. The schools to which you've been accepted will offer to fly you out in April so they can rush you. A few years back I interviewed a black senior for my alma mater. Both Carnegie Mellon and Northwestern popped for his airfare to check out their campuses.

Yeah, bump it up a little.

Go ED for one of the Ivies. You'll probably get in with good essays (and your scores indicate that you're a good writer).
