College for a tibetan refugee girl

My sister, a Tibetan refugee girl from India applying to US colleges. Since the recession many schools have stopped need-blind admissions for International students. Are the Ivy league schools a good choice?

Its my sister and she is applying to colleges now. So far she has decided on Middlebury, Williams, Berea, Colby. She is really passionate about wildlife and ecology. She is one of the top five students of her class. She is an athlete and a star musician and singer with her own band at school (which is quite hard for a girl in a Tibetan school in India.) She has studied traditional tibetan music for more than 9 years of her life. I am just wondering what her chances are for getting into one of the above mentioned schools and also wondering if she should submit applications to Ivy League schools. Just to give it a shot. Can you recommend some schools that might be good for her? And not too hard to get into?
