Do I have a chance at being admitted into Swarthmore?

My stats:
gpa: 3.8
sat: 1290 (I'm awaiting my score for the most recent one I've taken and may plan on taking it again in October as I didnt study at all for my first one)
APUSH: 3
AP world: 3
AP psych: 4
I will be taking 2 more APs in my senior year and will have taken 5 out of the 7 AP classes that my school offers.

I am Hispanic but come from a relatively wealthy neighborhood located in NY.

I plan on applying early decision and will submit an art portfolio along with my application.
I volunteer at a cancer hospital 2 hours away from my home 3 days a week and I am the secretary for my school's community service club.

I am aware that my stats are not typical for the average swarthmore student but I'm hoping by some act of God that I get accepted because this really is my dream school.

Is it worth it to apply or would I be wasting my time?

    If Swarthmore is your dream school, and you know that you need good scores, why You didn't study at all for your SAT?

    @International Dad I'm sure he studied for the SAT...it's more difficult than some people. I wouldn't assume.

    Honestly I admit that it was a mistake not to, and I did intend to study but I was dealing with some family issues at the time that got in the way, and I was having trouble juggling the two. I know that there's no excuses which is why I studied for the August one and plan to study for the test in October if I plan on taking it.
