Can I get into Fordham?

Currently I'm a high school junior. As of right now my grades are very poor, roughly a 2.6 GPA(weighted). However i do have some good EC's. Recently I've founded a club at my school educating my peers about the stock market and other finance related topics. In this club we also practice investing, have guest speakers, and learn investment strategies. In addition to this I am also on the Fed Challenge team. This is a club that learns about the economy and competes at a state level in a competition hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. I am also in the Italian club. Outside of School I try to get in community service when I have time, as well as being a member of my local church's catholic youth group. This group does many things mostly related to helping our local communities. Also I'm not sure how much this matters but I also was able to get a School board policy revoked at my school, the policy being that every student who does not pay an activity fee must pay $60 to join. This policy discouraged many people from participating in activities outside of school. As for my SAT scores I plan to take them soon. I'm expecting to get something near an 1800, as a receive lessons weekly. Also I know I can get great letters of recommendations as well as show strong interest in the school. Please let me know what you think my chances are.
