I could see you getting into BC/BU, your stats are in line with what they are looking for, if not just slightly low... Whats your rank in class? How competitive is your HS? I dont think it will matter though. You are in UMCP ED, in my opinion, as they don't care (someone check me on this) particularly as much about state residency (compared with UVA and UNC and the UC's).

my rank is around 30 out of 450
my school is a blue ribbon school of excellence if that means anything
