Chance me?

Hello everyone. I'm submitting an EA to Elon and am wondering if any of you have an idea as to how good my chances are. I am a male from NY.
1330 SAT (Math/English 630/700)
90 GPA weighted, not sure what this is on a 4.0 scale as my school does not calculate this way
I have not taken APs until this year, but I have taken a few college classes which my school views as equivalent or sometimes harder, but not sure how colleges see it. I am taking 3 APs now in my senior year however.
Extracurriculars: Varsity Tennis 3 years, JV tennis freshman year. Varsity co-captain
Varsity Athletes Against Substance Abuse club (very selective with a rigorous application process only open to 3-year varsity athletes)
Have worked a job at a local market 15 hours/week since September 2015
Run my own internet business since Sept. 2015
Consistent community service since 8th grade
Mock trial club sophomore year

Have 2 teacher recommendations that I believe are quite strong

Any input is very much appreciated! Thanks in advance and good luck to anyone else applying.

    Good morning! I think your chances are excellent with your strong record! You have a great mix (academic, sports, service), and would be a great addition to the Elon community. I have a son there, and he loves it. Whenever we visit, we are always so impressed by the great kids going there, and my bet is you would fit right in with them! Good luck!
