I think from these stats, I find you competitive. You have good experience and a very strong GPA in a challenging major. Just study hard for the GRE,, get good LORs from those who you've worked with and know that they like you, and I think you're going to be part of the uppercrust of applicants, so to speak.

Once again, since you are applying for a PhD program, your research will be king. Obtain as much research experience as possible and then be sure to write an expertly crafted SOP that highlights this experience and how the PhD is the next step in achieving your goals. -Admissions Advice Online
