Chances of acceptance to NEU?

Hey everyone, I'm currently a junior attending a high school in New York.

My brother is currently a freshman at NEU and I was wondering what my chances of acceptance are.

Freshman year:
GPA w/ weights: 3.5
All honors courses (No AP courses available)

Sophomore year:
GPA w/ weights: 3.8
1 AP course, rest honors (Only one AP course available)

Junior year (currently):
GPA w/ weights: 4.0
2 AP courses, 1 college dual-credit course, rest honors

Senior year (expected):
GPA w/ weights: 4.0
4 AP courses, 1 college dual-credit course

I've only taken one SAT and ACT so far but expect around a 2200 (old SAT grading) and 32/33.

I'm in the NHS for my school, am part of the Student Senate, play multiple variety sports and sports outside of school, am in multiple school bands, have A LOT of service hours, started a fundraiser for my school soccer program which has raised $6,000 for breast cancer, and was selected for a leadership conference from my grade. I also have a summer internship with a local video game development company.

I hope to major in computer sciences w/ game design.

Hopefully this is enough information, thanks for reading!
