Hate to do this, but chances please

Hey. I am a senior at a small private school in Los Angeles that does not rank. I really messed up in my freshman year, but got over it and started doing really well afterward. My weighted GPA 10-12 is 4.11, my weighted GPA 9-12 is 3.7, my unweighted GPA 10-12 is 3.7 and my unweighted GPA 9-12 is 3.3. My SAT score was 2320, with an 800 on writing, 770 on CR and 750 on Math. My SAT 2's were 730 on math2, 680 on Spanish and 690 on lit. I am co-president of student council, have traveled to mexico to build houses, do walks for aids and diabetes and such, tutor kids at my school, and have been on varsity tennis for 4 years. I am an interesting case, as I went to drug rehab and am being open about that in my apps. I am making it more about my parents' divorce though, and am using that to explain my poor grades and trip to rehab. Im not making excuses though, it's just true. I am sober and everything now, taking ALL honors classes, really pulling myself up. was wondering if you could give me any insight as to how my chances are. thanks.

    I am a mom of a Barnard student and not really "qualified" to assess chances...that being said, Barnard's admissions process seems to do a great job of taking all factors they are made aware of into account. I would imagine that you have an excellent chance with your circumstances and with your dramatic improvement in grades and having overcome so much.

    Best to you!
