    You're definitely qualified! As are the majority of applicants. You must find a facet to stand out! Opposed to vouching for the well-rounded attempt solely, try to have something that really makes you stand out! You are clearly on the right path, at this point I'd focus on the controllable: ESSAY QUALITY. You are obviously in the acceptable spectrum and for that I commend you. Just don't let yourself remain a number in the stack!

    Best of luck!
