Stats, etc. look pretty good. Work on your Verbal score (MIT has communications requirements, so I think they want you to be pretty good at verbals).. of course, since you took them in 7th grade, your scores will be pretty good when you take it again in 10th grade.
APs, etc. are fun You don't get too much transfer credit and AP credit at MIT though, so don't get your hopes up.
Private vs. public is your decision - where will you be happier? Where will there be better education adn extracurricular opportunities? Most people I know at MIT came from public schools (or public magnet/governor's academies type schools). I don't think it really matters as long as it's obvious that you challenged yourself academically.
