I think you have a pretty good chance.

Your GPA is semi-low, but everything else (especially your sats) look great! I wish I knew more about the college you want to get into, but if it's anything like the uc system, I think you should be fine!

I have a question: I'm part Native American, but don't consider myself to be disadvantaged b/c of it (from what I've heard, minority status is supposed to be for ppl whose ancestors have suffered hardships; they may need the extra boost), should I check off the box on the application?

If your are somewhat culturally connected, I would see on problem with it. However if your like 1/128 and have never been near a reservation it's prob dishonest
Reasonable shot I would assume with EC's being the only kinda weak point. Is that GPA weighted or unweighted?
