Currently a Junior, going to be a senior this fall, and I was wondering if I had a good chance of getting into the CS program at UMass Amherst.

Some Questions:
1. What are my chances?
2. How competitive is the CS program?
3. What ideal SAT score am I aiming for?

Weighted GPA: 3.7

Currently In-State

SAT: (Haven't taken) -> 1120 on PSAT *I know it's bad

Course Load:
Honors Math and Science
Regular CP English and History (planning to take honors next year)

AP Classes:
AP Comp Science Principles (this year)
AP Calculus AB (next year)
AP Statistics (next year)

Sorry for not providing SAT scores, I am currently studying and taking practice tests and hope to take them in March. Any feedback will help, thanks!
