u have a good profile but keep in mind applying to an ultra elite is no joke...credentials are still in excess supply compared to the spots in these schools.
just because u have good scores u wont get in, u need good essays, a good interview, and u need to show that you r well rounded.
most of all LUCK is a huge factor, so even if u dont get a top 5 top 10 dont think it means u r not worthy. best of luck thru the process
