    You should definitely try to talk to the swim coach...you should be good enough to swim at CMC and being a recruited athlete definitely helps in admissions. As far as stats, they seem more than solid. You need a great essay and swimming may be your hook.

    Also, anything you can do to highlight leadership...it's probably more important at CMC than other colleges with similar profiles

    I'm pretty sure that person was kidding; you are a strong candidate (SATs are all above the median, among other things)

    Wharton is harder to get in to. I think Chicago is the easiest of the 3 to get into, provided you can shine in the essays.
    For what it's worth -- Wharton and Chicago are very, very different places, culturally.
