Northeastern chances?

QUESTION
Northeastern chances?
I have applied to Northeastern Early Action Program and was deferred from Early Action to Regular Decision. Now I just want to know what you guys think my chances are of actually getting into the university so here is my application in a nutshell.
SAT: 660 Reading; 650 Writing; 640 Math; 10 Essay and Composite: 1310; Total:1950
G.P.A: 3.3/4(This is approx. from my school’s 4.6 scale where i got a 3.6/4.6, but I don’t know how colleges change them) Classes: 1 Honors Junior Year 2 A.P. Senior Year
Extra Activities: Over 150 hours volunteering at local hospital, Over 100 hours as a trained EMT working with my town’s First-Aid Squad, Stage-Crewed and Performed in several plays/musicals at my high school, wrote for the school newspaper, and I’m part of several clubs at school.

On top of that I got 2 kick-*** recommendations, wrote a pretty good essay if I say so myself and have basically gone to every event this school is at to let them know I’m interested. So all in all what do you think my chances of being accepted are? Please and Thank you for the help.

ANSWER
Your GPA is probably average for the school….
SATs look solid…right in the middle 50% of admitted students
ECs look pretty good

I’d say you have a good chance of getting in. They accept a lot of students anyways so they are not extremely selective like BC or Tufts for example where you would probably not get into those schools with your numbers. But Northeastern you have a good shot. If anything – you would be waitlisted but I can’t see why they would deny you.

PS – I personally got accepted into Northeastern. I am from mass… but I did not go there!
