Chances of Columbia GS

What do you think my chances would be? Fall of 2016

I'm transferring from a TX community college.

Major: Biology
College GPA: 3.81, HS GPA: 3.47
Credits: 36 (w/ 16 In Progress)
SAT - 1890
Work experience - Math tutor for 1 year
Extracurriculars - Phi Theta Kappa
Started own Health Professions club at attending college
60 hours of volunteer experience at local hospital

My only problem/main concern is I have a W on my transcript for Music Appreciation I took my freshman year.

All replies are appreciated! Thank you.

    Hi Im not related to the GS admission whatsoever, but just wanted ask you. Do you have a educational break? And if your educational break is one year (since you mentioned your work experience is one year), why do you want to study at GS instead of CC?

    I do, I took a break of one year after high school. And, CC requires students (at least I know of transfers) to complete their degree in 8 semesters. That means I'd have to finish in 4 semesters. At the timeline I'm on I don't think I'd want to/be able to do that. Also, I think most of my credits would transfer to GS than CC.
