    Try to get very good LORs and make sure ur sop stands out. tht will boost ur chances strongly in all the above unis. As for ur chances -

    1)University of Texas, Austin - moderate (but not out of reach)

    2)Stanford university - tough (mainly cuz of ur gre and just one IEEE paper)

    3)Texas A&M college station. - moderate (more favourable that UT Austin)

    4)University of Wisconsin,Madison - gettable

    5)Carnegie Mellon, Pitsburgh - well within reach
    6)University of Illinois, UC - safe to moderate

    7)Purdue University, Indiana - afe

    8)Arizona State University - extrememly safe. much much below ur profile

    9)Georgia Tech - safe

    10)UC,Berkley - moderate to ambitious (they tend to be selective)

    11)UC,LA - same as austin

    12)University of Maryland,college park - slightly tougher than UIUC...

    U could consider U michigan, columbia, UC Santa barbara, cornell......frankly i know a guy who made it through to MIT with ur kinda profile 2 yrs back. his CGPA was 9.72, gre was 1490 though and he had 2 IEEE papers. but he had LORs from his Boss at NVIDIA and from his project guide (who was from IIT)
