Can I get into this school?

As i'm a senior in highschool, i've been looking at schools nationwide this school intrigued me. Can anyone tell me if I even have a chance of getting into this school? I'm interested in Biosciences/biomed

I'm from out of state

My GPA is 3.6 unweighted, and 4.3 weighted

I got a really horrible score on my SATs (around 1500 w/o writing about 1000), but i'm retaking both SAT and ACT in October

I go to a magnet school where I "major" in Nursing, (basically my sched. consisted of 8 classes instead of 6 to fit in those nursing classes every year

---those 2 extra classes were not weighted- rather they were counted as electives

-I'm in the top 14% of my class

ALL core classes were at least honors, I also took AP world history, AP English, and AP Biology

-My senior schedule is equally as rigorous as my other school years
--taking 2 science classes

- I do have an art credit

-I worked a seasonal job last summer

ECs:
-HOSA(health occupation students of america) member senior and junior yr
-MRC(medical reserve corps) senior and jr year
-DECA sophomore year
-C.E.R.T. certified (volunteering)
-Key Club freshman and sophomore year

Idk if this helps but by the time i graduate I would have taken (and hopefully passed) the certification tests for both Pharmaceutical Technician and Certified Nursing Assistant

Thank you for your time!
