    Questbridge is impressive, but you definitely need to raise test scores for ivies. I'd say you have a good chance at UCLA, UCI, UCSD, and USC.

    Brown, Cornell, and UPenn are all very high reaches. Your GPA is below the 25th %tile for them. In addition your SAT is also low for these schools. UCLA and UCB are also reaches, for the same reasons above. Everything else looks like a match. You may need to add some more safety schools. Good luck!
