Chances for Health Science major at NEU?

Northeastern is my dream school and I've visited campus several times and liked it more each time. I've gone through a large majority of threads on here to try and gauge where I stand in relation to other applicants/accepted students, but would like another opinion.

White female, public school, rising senior
GPA: UW 3.84, W 4.2
Rank: 14/384
SAT: single sitting 1430 (R&W 760, Math 670). Plan on retaking this fall.
SAT II: World History 760
ACT: Have not taken yet but will this fall.
AP classes: World History (5), Psychology (probably 4/5), currently taking Statistics and Gov & Politics, next year I will take European History, Chemistry, Calc, World Lit, and Physics.

Waitressed last summer (150 hours)
Volunteering at hospital this summer (anticipate about 80-90 hours overall)
4 years varsity crew (8 seasons, I do it fall and spring)
3 years mock trial
Will be president of Rho Kappa (social studies honor society) this year
Member of NHS, NEHS (English), NAHS (Art)

I know Northeastern is pretty stats-driven, so I'm a little worried about my SAT score. Not sure about ECs either, but not too much I can do about them at this point. I plan on applying ED as well, to get any possible edge I can.

    Does anyone else here know if we recruit for Crew? That may help OP's chances

    Not sure if op is looking to continue crew or not. It's one of Northeastern's top sports, I think, though, so they'd probably have to be pretty good to be in the territory of recruitment and improving chances.
