Do my stats look good for a school like BU?

I am a sophomore going into junior year and I am planning on having a total of

9 APs

5 honors

I currently have a 3.9 unweighted GPA

For my extracurricular activities:

I work part-time at a pizza place during the school week and full-time during the summer

As of now I have 53 community service hours and plan on getting more

I run a civics club which helps seniors register to vote and run a mock voting day

I'm in chorus and intend on staying in it for the whole four years.

I am a student liaison for my school with the state.

And if everything goes right I should be interning for someone in my state house.

Part of NHS

For awards, I have:

A note of excellence from the state

Placing in the top three of the Patriot Pen writing contest multiple times

My dream school is BU and I just want to heighten my chances of getting in, since it is a hard-to-impress school.

Definitely! Looking at your stats, you seem ready and prepared for college. Your stats show that you are a leader and are excelling at school with A's. They would have no reason to defer you

yup. standardized tests would also be good to have. BU is pretty selective, but for generally getting in you should be good.
