What are my chances at UW-Madison?

Im a junior and Im nervous that for some reason Ill be waitlisted at UW-Madison -I have an ACT of 31 (w/ writing) -I have a 3.9 GPA (unweighted), 4.2 (weighted) -Im ranked 2nd in my class of 200. -By the time I graduate I'll have taken all honors classes and AP where applicable, including 4 years of English, 6 of French, 4 of orchestra, 1 of art, 7 math, 7 science, and 3 of history. This includes 10 AP classes. Ive also been involved/ will be involved in: -Tutoring -NHS -1 year of yearbook staff, 3 of extensive editorial work -Renaissance awards -Student of the month -1 year of JV tennis, 3 years of varsity, 1 year of being captain -Having a summer job -Outside work with the orchestra I plan on studying biology and going on to medical school. I come from a white, middle class family in Wisconsin. Assuming I write a decent essay and get decent letters of recommendation, what is my weakest point that would cause me to be waitlisted or denied entirely? Haha sorry Ranto I just wanted to see if I would get more responses this time
