I'm currently a junior living in New York State. I'm planning to apply to BU next year and was wondering if I had any realistic chance of getting in.

GPA: 3.8 uw (don't know weighted)
SAT:1250 (retaking 1/21 and expecting ~1350)

I'm a full IB diploma student.
I'm taking/ have taken 6 IB classes and 6 AP classes. All my classes this year are either AP or IB.
I go to the top public high school in the state.

I'm a first generation college student

Dance for 13 years - ranked 12th in the region
Band for 7 years -I've been in my school's high school band since 6th grade (5 years)
Mock Trial/ Pre Law club
Key Club
I'll have around ~150 service hours by the end of junior year

    This sounds super solid, especially being a first gen college student. If you hit your SAT goal, I'm sure you're going to be fine!!! I would try to volunteer at a few places this summer so that you have a few more things on your ECs. Good luck!
