Do I even have a chance?

I recently talked to my HS college counselor and she said I have a chance of making it in, but I have my doubts due to a low SAT score (which I'm re-taking in November, October is full). I'm looking at all these other people with high SAT scores and GPA's past 4; it's really discouraging me.

My CSU GPA is 3.94. (6 AP Classes, tons of honors classes. 10 AP Classes if you include senior year.)
SAT: 1030 (470M + 560 CR)

I really want to go here for Comp Science but realize that the math portion of my SAT is low. However that is because I completely winged the SAT and did not study at all (I don't know why I did, honestly. It was stupid of me.) I also forgot to bring a calculator. DOH! I've been preparing and have had lots of practice daily, I'm confident I can raise my math to at LEAST 550. Hopefully 600? Hopefully I will improve my CR too. Thank you CCers!
