Just study hard...very very very very very hard. You have to score on an upper level in just about everything. And of course, you have to have the money for it. Do all that, and you may have a chance at getting in. You're young, go for it.

Honey, you can do whatever you want to do in life!! You are young, and the future is in your hands (yea i know it sounds cliche). It is so true, though. You just need to study hard and know that it is possible to achieve anything with a positive attitude and some hard work! Good luck! I know you will do great!
