Chance me for UVA? (sort of stressed)

Hello! I'm a junior whose first choice is definitely UVA. I am looking to apply ED to UVA. Quarter 3 grades were recently finalized (and I doubt I am going to be able to increase grades in Quarter 4 what with having to be home because of this virus for so long - so pretty much, Q3 grades are going to be my semester 2 grades). I ended up with a C+ in Calc AB and a B in Physics (Honors). My school does send a note to colleges about the difficulty of our calculus class, but I'm worried about how this is going to hurt my admission chances for UVA. I am thankful for any advice!

    @RisingSenior2020 One big question is are you in-state or out of state? Also, you already have a 1600 SAT but had trouble with Calc AB and Physics? These are the only red flags I see...you have great EC's and experience and consistent commitment to medicine which is good. Best of luck...my daughter was accepted this year OOS.

    I am in state. I was quite surprised at my SAT score (the highest I had gotten on practice ones was a 1550), but yeah, I really realized I'm not the best at calc or physics..
