Chances of transferring to UNC Chapel Hill

Hey, I'm currently a sophomore at UNCA and I am thinking of transferring to UNC in the fall of 2021. I'm planning on deferring this semester because of COVID-19 and by the time I would enroll at UNC I would have about 46 credits. I would technically be applying as a sophomore transfer and I hear that they focus on your high school academics if you've only been in college a few semesters. I was homeschooled in high school, had a 3.92 GPA out of 4.0 and my SAT score was a 1250. My current GPA at UNCA is a 4.0 and I played intramural soccer, but since my second semester and this semester are being thrown off by COVID-19 I probably won't be able to get many extracurriculars to pad my application. I was just hoping to hear from people who have gone through the process and what you think my chances are

    Your grades are good, I think they'll likely be understanding of a lack of ECs considering the current pandemic. Like @Mcunn226 said, maintain good relationships with your professors to get good recommendations and write some good essays. If any EC opportunities do pop up, take them. You'll likely have a good shot.
