Vanderbilt. Business schools or Howard

I have a 3.5 GPA and a 1060 SAT (gonna retake it aiming for 1380 and above), I'm a junior in high school (rising senior class of '24), a Soccer player, African American Male, I also wear hearing aids (could add to my essay) and I really want to go to Vanderbilt's business school, do you think it's possible. Also, what other good business schools should I apply to right now the top schools I'm applying to are: Howard, George Mason, Vanderbilt (obviously), George Washington, Liberty, American, RIT, UVA, etc.... Thank you for the response in advance. Took 1 Ap Junior year and will take 2 or 3 more in my senior year as well as 2 DE classes.

What are your extracurriculars? They're also really important, just as much as stats at this point.

I play soccer for club travel in a decently competitive league. I don’t play high school due to missing tryouts 2 years in a row. I did indoor track my sophomore year and I plan on being the team manager for the boys basketball team this year. I also am in about 2-3 clubs that I actively go to. If given then freedom to I’ll attend more. I’m in BSU, GSA (not lgbtq+ just support it and my friends in it too), FCA, and yah that’s about it. My GPA is somewhat able to get into my schools honors societ
