You have a shot at all of the schools on your list. Best of luck.

This may seem nit-picky but I think MIT would give you more of a consideration if that SATII IIc score was 800. Besides that, you should have a good shot at getting in all of those schools.

Assuming that you applied regular decision for all of these, your range of chances (1500-1600 SAT range) would be:
These stats are from "The Early Admissions Game: Joining the Elite" (f.y.i.) Note that these percentages are based soley on SAT I scores, and your chances of admission could be positively or negatively affected by your other stats (i.e. GPA/rank, ec's, etc.)
