    I'd say Miami, BU and Penn State would be pretty easy to get into. The rest, not so easy. I was valedictorian of my 500 student high school with a 33 ACT and I played sports and did numerous clubs and I did not get into Duke, Vanderbilt, or Virginia. I knew a girl with a perfect SAT score, played 3 sports, was president of her high school, and she got denied from every single Ivy school.

    At some point it becomes luck of the draw. There are so many great students applying for limited spots. I'm pretty sure they narrow down the applicants and draw out of a hat. You better your chances if your parents are alumni of one of those schools or if you are a minority (hate to say it but it's true, I know two people that went to Ivy schools and they were both hispanic).

    Really more info is needed. Most Universities have criteria that they want to meet to fill there agenda's. Was he poor, a minority, smarter than average, rich, connected. All these types of things need to be considered to answer your question fully.
