Chances of getting into MIT??

I know MIT is a VERY competitive school, and I don't want to bother applying if they are going to laugh at my application. These are the classes I have taken thus far:

8th grade: Algebra I, Regents Earth Science, Spanish I
9th grade: Geometry, Regents Biology, Sr. High Chorus, English 9, Microcomputer Applications, Spanish II, Regents Global Studies
10th grade: Algebra II, Regents Chemistry, Sr. High Chorus, English 10, Spanish III, Music Theory I
11th grade (this year): AP US History, Sr High Chorus, Music Theory II (akin to AP Theory), Precalculus, Regents Physics, Intro to AP English

Next year I plan on taking AP Biology, AP Calculus AB, Sr high chorus, Economics & Government, AP English, and possibly environmental science

I know this doesn't sound like a terribly challenging course load, but these are the most difficult courses my school offers. I have been on high honor roll (95% or higher) since 5th grade. In addition, I play piano, guitar, and sing soprano, and compete in the Canon Envirothon.

Any advice or insights?

Well, I think MIT will look at the difficulty your school offers, and you'll most likely have a chance to tell them in your essay and/or interview (btw, DO THE INTERVIEW! They say it's optional, but it really is important). I think they're looking at school involvement as well these days - can't have every student holed up in their rooms buried in work hiding from the world. What kind of clubs you got going on?
