The Math and Writing scores are certainly high enough, however you might have a problem with the Critical Reading. That said you should be able to get into some of them without a problem (University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, UCal Berkeley, and UVA I would say you have a good shot and most of the Ivy's). I would suggest you check out the schools on their websites. Most of the top twenty universities list what are the average or median scores of students they accept for the incoming freshman class. I would saying with those scores and if you were a great athlete the answer would be a definite yes to all of them.

You don't say where you live, but I'd guess Washington, D.C. area. If you live in D.C., then you get in-state tuition rates in Virginia (and maybe Maryland, too). I think Maryland and Holy Cross are probably safeties for you and your chances are good at GW, too. The only thing that might hurt you at GW and William & Mary is that you don't seem to have any in-school activities or leadership at school. But your grades and test scores are good (except for that math score) and your class ranking is high. If you have great recommendations and good essays, I think you've got a good shot at all the schools on your list, except maybe Middlebury, which is a tough admit.
You don't need a website. You need the US News college book that comes out every fall. It gives the interquartile range for every institution, which is close enough.
I'm surprised that someone who apparently writes really well doesn't read nearly as well, but I wouldn't obsess over it. Reading is the hardest change at this level (at least from my experience tutoring it). What good would it do if you managed to get into a top 20 college if you couldn't read the textbooks and other material there? You could go to a 20-40 school, get a great education and have a wonderful life.

You need to improve your scores to have higher chances of getting in top 20 schools. When I first took the SAT, my score was low in the mid 1700s but then I got the sat guide from guideparadise: http://www.guideparadise.com/index.php?option=com_guides&task=buy&id=10 and my score went up to 2190 (800 math, 760 writing, 630 reading). I highly recommend this guide for anyone wishing to get a higher SAT score.

They had a better essay and GPA.
You could also apply to a school that does not require the SAT and assuming you are a woman, that would be Chatham which is about 2 miles from Pitt. It is more expensive though.
Look up Pitt at www.cappex.com to see what sort of GPA and SAT combination gets you in.
You need to apply to about 5 schools to make sure you get in some place even if it means going to a satellite campus.
