It is very likely you'll get in if you are in-state. Are you?

Your academics are way beyond fine.

And though you don't have a page full of extracurriculars, it helps a lot that they are very consistent (you've stuck with them for a long time). Just find a couple more ECs to sprucen up your application.

If you live in California, you're in for sure. ...Unless the UC's mess up, or something. I got into UCLA but not Cal. Weird, eh?

You are fine. You do'nt need extra EC just for the sake of extra EC.
You need to show a level of commitment in your EC, like sticking with it for a long time, instead of just putting up a long list of things.
