You dont state your current status in the U.S. after the age of 18 unlawful presence counts against you. You are taking a risk leaving the U.S. as consular officers have non-reviewable discretion.

Chances depend on facts. In your case, one of those facts is whether or not you have accrued enough unlawful presence to trigger a bar from the US. You began accruing unlawful presence on your 18th birthday and if you accumulate 180 days or more, you will trigger a bar upon leaving the US.
