    Everything looks good except the SAT and ACT. However, you are first generation which should help. UNC really seems to like first generation students. Hispanic might also be a hook. Consider EA since UNC should have your new scores in time for making a decision. See if your guidance counselor can advise you on this or contact UNC directly to see if October ACT and November SAT scores would be considered for EA.

    I am not implying that EA gives a edge. I have no idea but EA is non binding and greatly reduces the stress since you will know by Jan 31 if you are accepted, deferred or rejected. Since you are in the top 10% , have a good GPA, good EC and are first generation, I would think you have a very good chance.
