Given your interests and the fact that you apply also in Europe, I would also recommend to apply in Tilburg (I'm a faculty members there and think that your interests would be a good match).

165 is just shy of 90th percentile. It's 89th if I recall correctly. It's fine, I suppose, but maybe retake it to cross over to 90th percentile if you have the time and means to do so. A couple hundred bucks extra is inconsequential, in the grand scheme of things, if it helps you get into a better programme.
