    Geographic diversity (Alabama) plus the demonstrated interest (ED/visits/interview) will definitely help.

    It’s obviously hard to predict outcomes for a school with a roughly 16% acceptance rate, but back in the day close to 40 percent of ED students were accepted. Chances seem good.

    34 on ACT is within range.
