Heyy guys! I'm gonna be a senior and I'm from a pretty top notch public school from NJ. I'm a middle class Indian girl with sa special needs brother (he's gonna be my common app essay in some capacity). I fell in love with both Harvard and Cornell and because of my organization The Coding Girls - people say I have a decent shot at Harvard. I'm not sure, so I was wondering what you guys thought. Otherwise, I was going to try out for Cornell's Hotel School or their Arts and Science's school (not sure yet). Anyway, here's my life story.

5 APs this year (Lang 5, Comp Sci 4, Calc AB 5, APUSH 4, Bio 4)
4 APs next year (Lit, Comp Sci Prin, Stat, Macro, mb French)
GPA: 3.7/4.0 (unweighted)...4.2 weighted
SAT 2: 780 Bio E, 780 Math 2

Do I really have a chance at Harvard if I apply EA? I'm not sure if I should take the risk when I think I have a solid shot at Cornell. What do you guys think? I fell in love with both schools. Also, I would major/minor in computer science and hotel management/marketing/economics.
Any other schools I would be matches to?
