I am coming upon the end of my junior year of high school. Which, naturally, means I have completely gotten into the college frenzy. I am really looking into hopefully getting a full ride somewhere. I want to know my true chances, though, by those of you who have some insight on getting these rare full-rides.

Also, I have a part-time job. Oh, and will be going to Honduras this summer on a missions trip.
I am taking honors classes, with my senior year having things such as physics, anatomy, AP English, Latin IV, AP Psychology...
Looking at my stats, I feel I have a pretty good shot at a great scholarship. But I could be naive on this, so help me out!
If it helps any, I'm not picky about level of school. I'm somewhat looking into Xavier. Also, other small schools in Ohio such as Kent State, Youngstown State, MVNU, etc. My parents are considered higher middle-class, so need based scholarships are out. My older sister didn't qualify for financial aid, meaning neither will I. So I really need this full-ride! Is it too far of a reach?
Be brutally honest
