Well, your stats put you in the top 10% of students admitted to Wheaton. Thus your chances should be very high as long as you are the type of person Wheaton is typically looking for -- high morals and religious. Note that Wheaton does not require or rely on SAT II scores for admission.

Wheaton (IL) or Wheaton (MA)?

I live in Wheaton... I think you will get in. It's not extremely selective. You are better than most students, but I think what really counts is your spiritual side. Just write well about that and you should be fine.
