You have a shot. If anything it holding you back it is definitely your class rank. It seems that a lot of qualified people don't get in because they're not in the top 10%.

Hopefully your midyear report will raise your class rank substantially.

damn. the 40/350 is taking into account this semester's grades... but then again because of a weird quirk in our system the top ten students are always transfers so they might compensate, but who knows.
