UPenn ED or through Match?

I want to go to UPenn because I have basically settled down in Philly and it is essentially the school I want to settle down with. I am taking classes there that I have applied through which are free for the school district students and I got in, which may give me a bit of an advantage for me. I really also want to go to Yale, Princeton, etc. But my stats are simply not close, not even to Penn. However, kids in my school with sub 2000 SAT got into Penn and my SAT is right around there. I am studying for it and taking it again, possibly I can get at least an 2100. I would be matching at least 4 schools if I go through Match, Penn, Yale, Princeton and Columbia, but I know the chances are next to none. But I also heard that ED is just as competitive as RD, which is something I can do if I go through Match and do not get in through there.

So what should I do? I would be more than happy with studying at Penn.
EDIT: Or maybe I can just match Penn? I would not have time to write so many supplements.

    Two main reasons I do not want to do match.
    Extra supplements the more colleges I apply to.
    The super slim chance and how ED for Penn may be more advantageous for me.
