    Even though you have good scores and decent GPA for these schools, I'm sorry to say you kind of blend in to many other applicants without a significant passion/extracurricular. If your essays are fantastic it might offset this but I would say:

    Princeton- high reach
    MIT-high reach
    Stanford-high reach
    Cal tech-high reach
    Cooper Union-not sure
    Stevens-match
    Cornell-low reach/reach
    UMich-match/high match

    Sorry, I dont think any are attainable. Just to give you an apple to apple. Son was deferred from MIT EA.
    4.5 GPA (valedictorian), Tons of leadership, 1,000+ hours volunteer, state and national stuff, same ACT as you, and has 17 AP's (9 scores of 5 and 1-4) taking Georgia tech math this year. Thats the kind of kids you are competing against and he probably won't get in RD either. I hope you have safety schools?

    Me reading this: ooh, that looks a lot like my record... (some time later) wait, nevermind.

    That SAT is a problem (if you had like a perfect math, then it would be very, very interesting to see the result), but your GPA is really good.

    I would have said you were almost sure for Princeton before that SAT

    So, as of now, a lot of what happens depends on your state of residence and your ethnicity, unfortunately.
    (If in California, you have a very, very small chance at most of them)

    @ZBD5421‌ (1000+ service hours... how... thats like one hour per day)

    Universities don't really like accepting low SATs because lots of rankings depend on their average SAT scores.
