You may also want to add the Universiy of San Diego (USD) to your list. It would be a safety for you.

are any of those schools so unreachable that i shouldn't even apply?

Dartmouth is pretty unreachable. UMich may be too if you are out of state.

I'd say UCSB and Pepperdine are more reaches than matches. Although Pepperdine likes church related service, they will often pass over Catholic candidates in favor of envangelical Christian candidates. If you keep Pepperdine on your list, make sure you will be willing to put up with a certain amount of anti-Catholic sentiment on the part of some students, administrators and faculty.
A better bet, based on your including schools like Holy Cross and BC, as mentioned above, would be the University of San Diego - a beautiful Catholic school in a terrific city (San Diego!)with excellent academics. I wouldn't say it's a safety but it's a definite match for you. You may also want to check out Santa Clara University in San Jose and Loyola Marymount U in Los Angeles.
UCSB should be considered a reach just because the UC's take very few out of state students. Your current SATs and GPA are on the low side as an out of state student for UCSB.
