You have a fairly good chance at Dartmouth, but you do know this is a Duke forum and as such, we may not be as familiar with your schools' admissions requirements? I would advise you to post on their respective boards to get the most accurate responses.

I think both your academic and extracurricular achievements are excellent. Do you know what you received on your SAT II's because your SAT I places you at around average (or slightly below) in terms of scores. You may also need to bring that verbal score up.
If you can focus on something unique about yourself and about what you have done, then that would help you considerably. However, as I see it now, you don't have a real hook that would catch the admissions officers' attention. Once you find that, then you may have a better chance for admission, but you're certainly competitive in the applicant pool with what you have now. Good luck!
P.S. Write really good essays because Duke stresses the essays in the application.
