SAT Writing: How Much Do Colleges Care, Exactly?

So I got 2240 on the October SAT, which is great and I'm very happy with it. However, one thing that concerns me is the score breakdown.
I got 670 CR, 770 Math, and 800 Writing (10 Essay, 80 Multiple Choice). I'm satisfied with the overall score but I heard that some colleges don't really care about writing section. I know some colleges don't even count the writing score (looking at SAT score out of 1600), but do most colleges (especially ivies and other top-tiers) generally put less weight on the writing section than on math or reading, even though they look at SAT score out of 2400?
