You definitely have a shot. Your SAT's are slightly below average, but not by too much. I know some people who had lower SAT scores than you and got in. For SAT II's I think writing is required, and then take Math IIC and another one of your choosing. Make sure you work hard on your essays . Your extracurriculars look decent, so they shouldn't hurt you. Try to get leadership positions (President if possible) since these pull a lot more weight.
