Looks like you're doing great as far as academics go so I would suggest trying to develop a stronger EC profile and break into more Tier A or B activities. This will help demonstrate that you are a well-rounded student and will give UW-Madison more insight on your interests and commitments outside of the classroom.

A 60% chance is not a low chance of getting into a school. Service is great and writing a strong essay is also good.

I'm a bit confused with your PSAT score but bc it's practice you should always aim higher in the SAT since it can make you look more competitive. Additionally, your gpa can change so hopefully you can maintain it, but most importantly, you need more extra-curricular. Try getting involved in your community more, but don't sign up to a bunch of random stuff. If were you, I would sign up to clubs that compliments my interest.
