BU transfer fall 2020 chances

Hi- I'm new to college confidential so I'm not sure how this works, but can anyone tell me my chances of getting into Boston University as a transfer for fall 2020?

-I had a 3.6 GPA last semester, probably a 3.4 this semester
-I'm in my school's honors program
-I currently have an internship
-I volunteer at a local nonprofit
-I am in 3 on campus clubs
-I had a 4.07 (out of 5 I believe) weighted GPA in HS
-I worked a congressional internship in HS (as well as had a leadership role in HS writing center and was in clubs)
-I didn't previously apply to BU

What I think is working against me-
-Didn't have the best HS resume
-HS GPA wasn't great- I'm not sure how it translates but it was probably a 3.2 or something
-my GPA this semester may not be as high
-BU is just incredibly competitive

Please let me know!!

    The GPA is below their average of admitted students but you are still in the running.
