Vassar Chances?

I go to a relatively small public school. I struggled with epilepsy throughout my entire high school career resulting in me missing a lot of school and ultimately resulting in a grade drop. I’ve been getting them up but here’s where I’m at. I have an unweighted GPA of about a 90% average of my first three years. I got a 30 on my ACT but that was after taking it once without studying and I’m confident I can improve it at least 1 or 2 points. I take all AP’s offered (4 this year) so my weighted gpa this year is about a 4.3.

Extracurriculars
Flute section leader in band (been in band all years of HS)
Member of the Jazz band (all four years, you must audition)
I take flute lessons outside of school
National Honors society member
Varsity tennis junior and senior year
JV soccer freshmen year
Track 2 years
Travel soccer
I ski race alpine and GS every weekend
I play for a tennis team in the summer
Member of GSA
Member of Model UN
Member of Health sciences club

Volunteer work:
Tutoring (mostly middle schoolers)
I volunteer at songcatchers (teaching music to kids)
I Babysit for volunteering as well

Also some personal stuff, i’m Epileptic, Gay (woman), I’m a dual citizen (Norway and US) and I’m mixed Indian and Norwegian. I know I don’t really meet the standards and that Vassar is a reach but I want to know if it’s completely hopeless

    You never know, but your stats alone won't land it. You're going to have to explain why your remarkable in lieu of the specific hurdles you've overcome . Good Luck!
