It sounds as if you have a very good chance, but no one can predict much beyond that. Make sure your application highlights the ECs that have been most important to you and why, as the adcoms are more likely to be impressed by quality than by quantity.
You mention you're "not sure about length" regarding your essays. Note that Yale strongly discourages applicants from going much above the 500-word limit for each essay.
