    If you get a higher score on the SAT/ get a high score on the ACT, and raise your gpa little, you are in. Right now you have a good chance, but if you just improved your test scores you have an excellent chance.

    And of course, people will always say since you're a minority that'll help get you in, etc., but never rely on that

    Good luck!
