Work Experience: Tutor a teacher in statistics. She is going for her masters in biosciences or something.

Subjective: THIS IS MY PROBLEM.
Essays: eh, I liked them. I didnt show it to too many people. Parts probably clichéd (talking about immigrant parents) but oh well.
Teacher Recs: Probably general praise, no specific antidotes to be honest, Im not expecting anything amazing from them
Counselor Rec: Alright, just a rehash of my ecs but she has like 600 students. The only people who get to know the counselor are the people who get in trouble. (damn public schools) She didnt even spell my name CORRECTLY! She also messed up the name of some of my awards and extracurriculars.
Hooks (if any): umm. Dont know. Female URM, who wants to be an engineer? But my interviewer said the college does not consider race or major so I guess its not really a hook .
INTERVIEW(Dartmouth): Eh he asked me a lot of political questions that I didnt know. It lasted for an hour and half . He asked me what research I did outside of school .. Is that a requirement for Dartmouth/other schools if you want to be an engineer? I havent done any. He also asked me what I have done to change my school and that question didnt go well either. OTH said he was rooting for me and would write a good report and would "celebrate" if i got in but honestly, I think he was just trying to be funny. I felt like he was being sarcastic, laughed at (not with) one of my responses to his question, sort of belittled my intelligence, made weird facial expressions while I talked . Overall, it was a negative experience. I should have been more prepared, interviewing and charming people definitely isnt one of my fortes.
State or Country: United States
School Type: Public
Income: <40,000 (not many people know of my financial situation so this doesnt matter)
I went on a trip to Dartmouth that was paid for by the college (but apparently doesnt mean anything.)
Question: Am I just being overly insecure because decisions are coming closer? Are any of you guys feeling like this? Like I dont even know Should I just calm down?
Any college suggestions?
Im sort of new to this whole CC game. The posts on here are definitely not helping my confidence
