can i get into babson college?

QUESTION
can i get into babson college?
i am a 16 year old junior. i go to one of the most rigorous private schools in connecticut (greens farms academy) and i have a 3.0 gpa and around 1900-2100 on my sat. i will mainly be basing my college essay on how since 7th grade i have gone through my life watching my father slowly die in front of my eyes and his death last year. i will also mention about how my mother’s arthritis prevents her from being an active participant in my life. i have plenty of excuses for why my grades were so poor in high school.

i will not be using any scholarships, nor will i be applying for financial aid. my mother graduated from babson.

basically, my question is to you, will i be able to get into babson college?
