What are my chances of being accepted?

I am a high school senior and applied to the University of Minnesota. CBS as my first choice and CLA as my second. I was wondering what my chances are of getting in. I applied in early October and still haven't heard anything back yet.

I am taking two college classes this year and took one last year. Have been in honors classes all throughout high school. I was in soccer for four years, band for one year, track for one year, and the musical for all four years. I have little volunteer hours.
GPA: 3.68
ACT: 27

I feel like I have a good chance but not sure. Let me know what you think.

    I'd say you have a really good chance. A lot of kids on here think you need to have a 4.5 gpa to get in anywhere... That's really not the case. But anyway, I think you have a 95% chance of getting in.

    Even for the U of M College of Biological Sciences?

    @Abblus:

    Your ACT test score is below CBS average (about 30) and GPA is also below CBS average. You have chances but you have to wait. You have much higher chance to get into CLA though.

    I think you'll get in I got in and my GPA was lower than yours although your ACT is a little lower than mine so I think it balances out if you ask me

    Since I would probably be one of the last ones admitted to CBS does that mean it could ruin my chance of getting into CLA because that will fill up by the time they make a decision on me for CBS?

    @Abblus

    I'm still waiting for my decision but I don't think the fact that they waited to make a decision on CBS would hurt your chances for CLA. It simply wouldn't make sense for them to do that.
