I’m a current HS junior who is looking into applying to the University of Washington, Seattle Campus for CS direct admit. I’m wondering how much of a chance I have. I know that it is crazy competitive, but I am an in-state student.
I’ll summarize my stats and ECs here. Thank you in advance!

Also took Calc 3, Differential Eqs, Health, Statistical Methods, Linear Algebra at a local college in 10th

I was planning on being a BioE Major, but then I had a change of heart in my Data Structure and Algs class, so I have mostly Bio related ECs.
