Chances for getting into UF?

Okay, so yes, it's another one of those "what do you think my chances are..." questions. I won't know until February 15, so I know there's nothing else to do but wait. No need to worry and such... I can't help but wonder though...

My dream school is the University of Florida. I'm an out-of-stater, so I guess that might be a strike against me? I dunno really...

- I have a 4.1 GPA, I'm the valedictorian from a class of 370 (lucky me, I know...), and I have decent outside activities.

- I am a weak test taker! :/1900 on the SAT. 630 CR, 600 M. 670 on writing, but... I don't believe UF looks at that...

- I'm an IB student... I know UF is a top IB student recruiting school... I am going for the full diploma and have already taken one test last year and scored a 6 out of 7...

- I've been in the top choir since...forever. I've made All-Region Choir every year of high school... I also am apart of a small after school choir group and we go around and perform around the city. It's pretty neat. :)

- I have over 200 volunteer hours from the local hospital, and 100 from the public library. As far as total volunteer hours go, I have around 500...

- Umm, I'm in NHS...secretary of NHS...

- I was nominated and selected for M.A.S.H. (Medical Applications for Science and Health, a neat summer program), Governor's School, and Girls State.

- Decent essay, I wouldn't say amazing, but I don't believe it would be a turn-off.

- Holding a job since this past summer...

I think that covers the major points...

I got accepted at Florida State already... What do you think about UF though? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
