    Your GPA, AP's seem strong. Not sure about SAT's as last year I think they only calculated it based on Math and CR, which would give you 1390, still a pretty decent score but worse than a 2130. EC's seem strong. Don't know the justification of the rating of your essays and rec's but assuming you judged them well, overall I think you have a pretty good chance :)
