What are my chances for getting into Boston University?

Hi! I’d like to know what my chances are at getting into one of my reach schools. :) I want to major in Classics and Archaeology.
- My unweighted GPA is a 3.4, weighted it’s around a 3.6.
- I’ve taken APHG, APUSH, and next year I’m taking AP Art, APGov, APLit, and AP Environmental Science.
- Most people at my school take six classes, last year I took seven and next year I’m taking eight. My seventh course is Latin, and the eighth is Russian.
- I’ve taken honors english for the past two years.
- I hold two editorial positions in my schools newspaper.
- I’m an elected member of my schools student government.
- I come from a diverse background (multi-cultural, immigrant, poor)
- I work a part time job.
-I haven’t taken the SAT yet, though my projected score from the PSAT is a 1300 (I forgot about the test and didn’t study, I’m confident I’ll score higher if I actually remember to study).
Thank you! :)
