Dude, with your grades and scores, you have a reaslitic shot at many schools.

Amherst
Bates
Bowdoin
Brown
Carleton
Colby
Dartmouth
Davidson
Grinnell
Haverford
Macalester
Middlebury
Oberlin
Pomona
Reed
Washington and Lee
William and Mary
Swarthmore

NYU and George Washington are not exactly in keeping with the rest of your list. For safeties, I would look into:
