Chances of getting in

I am a resident in the Seattle area and have applied as a freshman to UW, UT Austin and Purdue University.

Although my first choice is UW, I applied to the other ones just for a backup. I am a running start student and am completing all the pre requisites for the major Aerospace and Aeronautics at Green River College. My plan is as I get admitted to UW as a freshman, I will also apply for the major as a upper division applicant since by the end of my running start program I will be done with the pre requisites for their aerospace program.

Now the thing is, I got a decision from Purdue that I am denied admission to their engineering department but offered an alternative major. That's pretty much a denial from Purdue, which made me feel really low of myself and right now I feel frustrated if I will be able to even get into UW.

I understand it's not possible to say right away by looking at my academic history if I can make it to UW, but can someone at least tell me if I have a chance there?

Highschool GPA: 3.93
College GPA: 3.65
AP: None
Full Time Running Start Student

SAT 1: Critical Reading: 490 | Math: 610 | Writing: 460 Total: 1560
SAT 2: Critical Reading: 460 | Math: 630 | Writing: 540 Total: 1630

Clubs: Robotics, American Society of Mechanical Engineers

Employment: Assistant Teacher at Kumon Math and Reading, Student Helpdesk Employee at Green River IT department

Essay was about peer pressure from family and how I overcame it to realize whats best for me and how important working hard is.

UW knows I am hoping to be placed into the Aerospace program since I am completing the pre requisites before Fall 2016.

I gave the similar info to the Purdue University but got denied, and so I am really frustrated.

Thanks in advance!
