The one big piee of info that you didn't mention was your career goals and why you want an MBA. That's obviously important for selecting your specific target schools. But otherwise, I think you stand a pretty good chance. When thinknig/talking about your extracurricular activities and community involvement, be sure to show you you weren't just "involved in" things, but how you also led them or made a real difference!
