Good/high match schools for Ivy applicants?

    Based on what little info I have you sound like a very high stat Asian applicant (which I could be wrong). If that is the case you have some red flags I want to point out. You eliminate two schools because of the writing requirements which makes me think that you don't like writing. All of your reach schools are holistic and writing the essays is very important to gaining admissions. If what I am saying is true you'll need to understand that Asians applying to reach schools are simply rejected at a high rate as in the case @Lindagaf references. This is especially true when the applicant is not or does not like to write, so my advice is to pick some of the match schools when you can get merit aid for your high stats and ED to a reach school to maximize your chances for that school.
