    University of PA-reach
    Carnegie Mellon-match
    Boston University-low match...probably even safety
    Penn State-match
    George Washington Univ.-match
    Johns Hopkins-low reach

    I think you have a decent shot at all schools you listed. All Ivies are going to be reaches though since no one can really say anything about that, but I still think you have a strong chance. Grades and SATs are great.
