Would I be able to get into the top 10 colleges with these things on my resume?

I’m only a sophmore in high school, so I don’t have my SAT grade yet.
I’m in IB and receive all As except one B and I’m pretty confident that i can remain having the As.
I’m the president of a medical club that i started, and vice president of another club, and secretary of a global warming club.
I go to at least three medical mission trips per year, and participated in a environmental project with my local University.
I volunteered in hospitals and cancer centers for more than 150 hours (more to come)
I play tennis, swim, guitar,drawing, painting, sculptures.
I’ve only been in the US for two years. ( Chinese was my first language)
I’m planning to start a research with a professor at my local university.
What are my chances of getting into the top colleges?

Yes you can. Whether you will or not is another matter – they reject guys like you all the time. About the only top 10 school I know of that you can get into for sure is Harvard extension school:

Although part of Harvard they are not the school people think of for Harvard – that’s Harvard college. But you still get a degree from Harvard – make no mistake about that.

Thanks

    the only problem is that ur chinese
    colleges only accept certain amounts of asians.

    It sounds like your chances are really good. Keep up the good grades and you sound very well rounded. It is competitive to get into the top schools so you have to work really hard. It sounds like you have some good experiences. Just remember life isnt all about work… have fun while you are trying to get there.
