My school is very small, having opened up only 3 years ago and I'm a founding member of the class. We only have around 45 students in the first graduating class and not many in school extracurricular activities. However, this year I was diagnosed with clinical depression and Fibromyalgia and had to really struggle with finding ways to cope and deal with those issues.

With all this I would like to know what my chances are for getting into University of Rochester and if they are grim how can I make myself more of a competitor.
