Can someone please tell me what you think my odds are of getting into Stanford?

GPA: 3.8, 4.4 weighted, no rank available
SAT 1510 M 800, V 710
SAT II U.S History 780
Math IIC 710
Writing 660
Writing and Math II are going to be taken again
AP's U.S History 5
World History 5

My dad went to Stanford. He is not a huge donor but he has given money. I don't know if that will have any effect on my chances. Because I volunteered at a campaign office, I am having a guy who is running for U.S Senator write my recommendation. I'm trying to build the whole passion for government thing by having my own political talk radio show and being president of the history club. I also T.A'd a Religion Class and did volunteering at a poor house. I was on the golf team and am in the Film Club. One of my biggest holes is that I have no work experience and no rewards except National Merit Commendation.

Thanks

OK, please don't take the same post and put it in two different places. People will look at if you only post it once.

Now I'm annoyed at you, and I'm not going to talk to you any more.

I'm sorry! I would make a quaker joke but that guy might have me arrested.
