What are my chances at Yale, Duke, UVA, Columbia, NYU, Northwestern, Colgate and Georgetown? 1520 SAT 1, 750, 720, 720 SAT 2's, lots of AP classes, varsity sports, very good EC's, great recs, very good essays.

Well, you have a very good chances if your ECs, recs and essays are very good. You'd have to be more specific for a better answer though.

Your average, class rank, and the caliber of your school would help.

GPA is 3.8, unweighted, my school doesn't rank, top New England prep school.

In at Northwestern, NYU, UVA, Colgate, and Georgetown for sure.

Duke about 60% chance

Thanks. Anyone else? Also, applied ED to Yale and was deferred. I seem to be in good company there.

Hmmm... Thats unrealistic even for the top-applicants.
Scores are not everything... Also, as binarystar said, you have to be more specific with your 'good ECs' etc... There are loads of people applying have great ECs. Something that you might think is extraordinary may just turn out to be a normal thing for many applicants... I'd leave it up to the adcoms [and some of the people on this board] to decided just exactly what are good ECs, essays, etc... I'm sorry-- you sound a little presumptuous when you describe yourself so briefly.
