Help! Chances of transferring to Emory

I am seriously considering transferring to Emory U this fall. I picked Emory because I love the school, and its undergrad business program is among the best. I'm just really nervous because it is really the only school I am interested in transferring to, so its kinda all or nothing! Here is my information.

University of Tennessee- Knoxville, Honors student, 3.7 GPA, Top 15% (or higher, I'm not sure)
ACT: 32
SAT: Math 630, Reading 610, Writing 640...or somewhere around that)
HS GPA: 3.8 (with honors classes and dual-enrollments at a community college)
Graduated Top 10% (my HS was pretty competitive, always produces a lot of national merits, etc)
Captain of HS dance team
Attended Governor's School for Internation Studies summer after sophomore year (selective program- I think only 11% got in) and received 6 hours of college credit
Also, I took the Mensa Home Test and was invited to take the real test (if you score in 95th percentile)..but not sure if this should go on my App?

Note- Yes, I realize my SAT is not the best, but I only took it once. Also, my PSAT score was in the 98 percentile (so ALMOST a National Merit!) should I include that on the application?

Anyone with info on Emory/what's important to them, or anyone who will give me an honest assessment is greatly appreciated. I am swimming in finals right now, so this is possibly the worst time to be worried about transferring, but I guess that's how life usually goes!
