WOW! Why do you even need to ask?!!! I would say you are in no matter where you apply. Congratulations!!!!

Well, if I were to evaluate you based on what you put here, I'd have to say "looks good." But...so do the other thousands of applicants to "The Ivies." Contrary to what Parentofteen says, no one is "in" at Harvard (or Duke or Stanford or Brown, etc) until they are indeed -in-. Definitely apply: you're certainly qualified. But it's still a crapshoot.
