Chances at Bowdoin?

Hi all. I've been looking into Bowdin and was wondering how much of a chance I stand at getting in.

White male, middle class family outside of Boston, small Catholic high school, first member of family to attend college.
GPA: 3.9 weighted, not sure about unweighted
Rank: 10/110
SAT: 600 M, 640 CR, 740 W, 1980 total (I know it's low but Bowdoin doesn't require them so I might not sumbit them)
SAT IIs: Taking in November
ACTs: Taking in October

ECs/awards/courses/everything else:
-Varsity Track team for 4 years. Captain. Won coaches and most improved awards.
-Varsity Cross Country team for 3 years.
-National Honor Society. Secretary.
-SADD for 3 years.
-International Club for 3 years.
-Yearbook for 1 year (seniors only).
-School newspaper for 1 year (seniors only).
-Traveled to Japan freshman year as part of a two week exchange program.
-Hosted two foreign exchange students.
-Lesley College book award winner.
-Citizenship award.
-Most improved General Science as a freshman (Heh, not sure if I should list that one).
-I'll be taking 3 AP classes next year (my school only offers four) which are Biology, History, and English. I'm not eligible to take AP Calculus because I've never been great at math but I will be taking Honors Pre-calculus.

That's about it. I'd really appreciate it if anyone had any thoughts on whether or not I should sumbit my SATs. I'm also looking into Trinity, Providence, Boston College, Boston University, St. Anselms, and Amherst in case anyone is curious. Thanks a lot.
