None of us can really evaluate your chances, since grad school applications depend on so many factors, many of which are never clear to anyone who isn't on the admissions committee.

That said, I notice you listed extracurriculars. Those don't really matter at all in graduate applications, unless they are in some way related to your field of study.

Good luck with your applications!
