Transferring into BYU... How hard is it to get accepted?

edited October 2011 in Brigham Young University
I am currently enrolled in fall semester 2011 at a small university in southern Utah. I recently returned from an LDS mission 2 months ago and am seriously intending to apply to BYU-Provo as a transfer student. Before my mission I earned my Associates degree.

What are my chances of getting accepted?

My stats are:

College GPA: 3.59
Major: Psychology
Year: Junior
Ethnicity: Hispanic
Returned missionary
Eagle Scout, duty to God, seminary graduate
Many service hours

Thank you in advance for your help. =)

    I don't know too much about BYU acceptance rates and who is more likely to get accepted. I feel like returning has a missionary would give you some sort of leg up. I got accepted to BYU Provo as a transfer for Winter 2011 and I had a GPA of 3.18, I think with a 3.59 you should be fine because I know a girl who got accepted as a freshman (which I've heard is a much harder feat.!) with a 3.5 :) Just do really well on your essays and it looks like all your credentials in place! I think thats the only reason they accepted me haha! Competitive GPA is 3.3 so you're fine!
