Chance Me UVA EA 2023 OOS

Hey guys. I'm an out of state senior and I will be applying to UVA Early Action this fall and was wondering if you guys would chance me for admission. I'm a white male that goes to a very competitive and difficult high school (the top public school in California) which is why my GPA is not that high.

Potential major: History

SAT I (Superscored breakdown): 1530 (780 Math, 750 Reading & Writing)
SAT II: 800 French Language, 790 US History,
Unweighted GPA (out of 4.0): Ranges from 3.8-3.85 depending on which one you look at
Weighted GPA (Out of 5.0): Ranges from 4.1-4.3 depending on which one you look at

Rank (percentile if rank is unavailable): NA
AP (place score in parenthesis): French (5), APUSH (5), AP World (5), Lang (5), Psych (5),
Senior Year AP Course Load: AP Lit, AP Gov, AP Econ, AP Physics 1, AP Art History
Major Awards (USAMO, Intel etc.): National AP Scholar,

Extracurriculars (place leadership in parenthesis): Founded MUN club and Model Congress, President Speech and Debate,
EDU Inter French Camp Quebec
ACLU Summer Advocacy Institute at Georgetown
Interned over the summer at the University San Diego Legal Clinics (eventually want to become a lawyer)
Played Piano with the Quebec Conservatory of Music
Soccer (almost 12 years but chose not to play varsity)
Piano (Almost 13 years, awards are mainly regional Guild and CM stuff)

Essays: Pretty good so far. I would count myself as a pretty good, introspective writer. Mainly about how I can speak 5 languages and how that has/can help me. (I promise the essays sound much better)

Teacher Recommendation:
English and US/Psych Teachers: Both should be pretty good.
Letter of Rec from piano teacher (who is also a college professor): should be great as she has known me for over 10 years
Counselor Rec: Pretty average tbh.
State (if domestic applicant): CA
Country (if international applicant): US
School Type: Competitive top public school
Ethnicity: Not a minority
Gender: Male
Income Bracket:
Hooks (URM, first generation college, etc.): Can speak 5 languages, triple citizen, multicultural etc.

I know my EC's are not fantastic but I would back myself as a pretty good writer and so far, I'm pretty happy with my UVA supplementals. Thanks!
