How slim are my chances of being accepted into Vanderbilt?

I'm a high school senior, my current GPA is 3.905, and my class rank is 19 out of 143 (Hopefully, if I do good this year I can change that a little bit).

I've taken 3 AP Classes (Only 3 offered at my school, unless you do more through APEX, which I didn't know about until after this school year had already started).

Most of my other classes have been CP (college preparation).

I've also had 7 dual-credit college classes.

I'm a member of the Beta Club, FCA , HOSA, and Pep Club; and I'm also planning on running track this year.

I've had no foreign languages.

I know this isn't great compared to a lot of others on here, but I come from a very small school with very few options. If I'm able to raise my ACT to at least a 32, if not more, what are my chances of being accepted into Vanderbilt? I would really appreciate some answers.

    At the panel for 1st years' parents this year, we were told that 95% of the 31,000 applicants according to the admissions office were capable academically to attend Vanderbilt. Hearing that, it's hard for anyone to tell you what your chances are to be admitted to Vandy. Focus on making sure your application reflects who you are and how you can contribute to Vanderbilt. Then you've done your best.
