You'll find people with your stats and lower who got into these places (a friend of mine who is AA got into Chicago with a 15x) but no amount of data here could accurately predict your chances. That said, do not let the numbers keep you from applying. You most certainly have a chance.
I will say for GPA restrictive schools like Penn you might be up against more of a challenge, but that isn't to say you wouldn't get in. Non-AA URM here with a 3.9x who got WLd at Penn so, anything really can happen.
Consider Harvard, especially now that you're applying in the year where it begins its pilot program of accepting the GRE in lieu of the LSAT. Take the GRE and see how you do. Can't hurt!
