    Mediocre chances. The ACT score is about a 1300. You do have some things working for you like IB and volunteering, but your grades/scores are not spectacular. Wake is a reach school for you I would say and I could see it going either way.

    I seldom respond to chance threads. Seldom. I read the though- because they are rather interesting.

    I don't know your shot at wake. Nobody really does. All admissions work differently. There are so many different fators that we cannot see on college confidential. I know people with lower and higher scores than you at Wake.

    The importance is how you present yourself. Work on those essays, make them shine the real YOU. Really try to show why you want to get into wake.

    Just adding on to what I said, distinguish yourself and like fluffy said--work on your essays! Wake takes a very holistic approach to applications, so just try to work on your essays/application. good luck!
