Keep in mind that Ivies often have large endowments from alumni donations, so they may offer a lot of gift aid and will not cost as much as the sticker price! For schools you are seriously considering, look up "university X net price calculator" to get a better estimate of how much you will actually have to pay based on your family's income and assets. For reference, I found most of the net price calculators (the in-depth ones, idk how accurate MyinTuition is) to be within ~$1,000 of the actual offered cost. Here are the calculators for each of the Ivies:
