    Well your SAT's are stellar, and based on those you have a good shot but your grades are not that great.

    I believe you have too many B's and C's.. Now granted they may be in Honors/AP/College level classes but If you want to get into an Ivy (or equivalent) you have to be a straight A student UNLESS you are an amazing (and I mean really really good) athlete, or your parent donate a couple hundred thousand dollars a year because its their alma matter.

    Also, your resume isn't that impressive compared to many students applying. They completed internships, are in multiple honor societies are heavily involved in a hobby/interest (like for music they aren't in just their school orchestra, they are also in a youth orchestra, the school pit orchestra, participate in county music festivals etc).

    Our valedictorian 2 years ago got rejected from two of the Ivies he applied to, yet he was a semifinalist in the Intel STS research competition, had amazing SAT scores, 5's on all AP exams etc.. So I don't see you having a very big chance at getting into the ivies (generally with an acceptance rate of less than 10% excluding Cornell which is around 15% ~ I cant remember exact numbers off the top of my head).

    Some of the other schools on your list are possible for you to get in (like Penn State), but i don't know a lot about the other schools..
