What GPA for Georgetown+UChicago+Ivies?

I sort of fall into the "low GPA, high test scores" category.

For Freshman and Sophomore year, I took a full-honours courseload and came out with 3.85 and 3.87 respectively (unweighted: our school doesn't weight GPA).

For Junior year, which just finished, I came out with 3.79 and took a full-IB courseload.

My GPA went down even though I tried x10 harder. IB classes are just REALLY hard. Do you think colleges will see this? I really wish our school weighted GPAs based on course difficulty.

So that leaves me with a 3.84 for these 3 years. My SAT is 2300+. Academically, do I stand a chance at places like Columbia, Georgetown, UChicago etc?
