Chances of getting into a good college?

It has been my dream to go to a good university. I am a foreigner (a junior in a high school), and live in Connecticut. I moved to the U.S. 2.5 years ago. I am a permanent resident though not a citizen. Right now, I have a 3.8-ish GPA (unweighted, on a 4.0 scale) and have taken 4 AP classes so far:AP Bio, AP Chem, AP Computer Science and AP US History. I am taking at least 2 more APs my senior year (next year): AP Physics and AP Economics + Calculus BC.I participate in Math League and an engineering club at school. I also play volleyball (3 years so far+next year+varsity). My SAT scores are 1780/2400 (500 Reading, 570 Writing, 710 Math)+ 8/12 on the essay part. Taking another SATs this upcoming March again. My Freshmen year in High School, I had taken no honor classes but got good grades (I took algebra II during my freshman year).I am interested in engineering and have been taking an engineering course in my school for 2 years (and probably will take another one next year). I love math and physics.I speak two languages (my native and English).I am looking at some good schools like Boston University, University of Connecticut, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Northeastern (in Mass), and probably Tufts.I'd like to hear something about my perspectives on me getting into a good college? Should I look at those schools, maybe better, maybe lower. And yes, colleges must be from NY, CT, MA, or NJ.I forgot to mention that I also play acoustic guitar :)
