I just finished my senior recital at a small liberal arts college. I applied at all the great schools in my area (Northwestern, Cincinnatti, IU) and here was my repetoire:

Bach P/F g# Bk. II
Mendelssohn Variations Seriuses
Chopin Op. 10. No. 5
Chopin Op. 25 No. 9
Godowsky Badinage

Intemission

Prokofiev Sonata No. 7 in Bb


How does my repertoire look for a graduate applicant? I feel I played them all well, so I'm asking for a look at my strength of playing.

It is a reasonable recital program, but I am not certain what you expect us to make of this. If you have gone through four years of college and that is all that you can play, what do you think?

If you said you have also learned 20 other pieces that you could put into performing condition in a week or so, I might be more impressed, especially if they were pieces that showed that you have some interest in a broader piano repertoire.

What sort of career are you aiming for? Performing? Then you probably should have more than 20 more pieces. Teaching? Then you should show that you are familiar with more than the plain vanilla repertoire.

After four years, you should have some idea of your own capabilities, as well as the realities of this business.

Do you really need an intermission?
only to play Prokofiev at the second half?

The program is otherwise quite demanding.
personally i wouldn't start with the Bach.
