Chances of getting into BU

Hello! Boston University is my #1 choice and the only thing that stopped me from applying ED was the possibility of not being able to finance tuition.

I'm a White female from Western New York.

My GPA: 3.9
My ACT: 27
I rank in the top decile (10%)
I have at least 150 hours of community service and several extra curriculars.
My teacher letter of recommendation was written by an alum.
I've taken almost every AP or Honors course that my school offers.
I'm a member of the National Honor Society as well.
My principal nominated me for the Trustee Scholarship and I sent in an essay for that.

Senior Classes:
AP English Lit & Comp
Honors Government
Honors Economics
Honors Pre-Calculus
Spanish V
Public Speaking
General Psychology
College Preparation 12
Independent Study in Industrial Revolutions (because AP Euro got cut - explained on Common App)

What are my chances of getting accepted? My biggest concern is my ACT score.
