Other “Good Fit” Options for Disappointed Stanford Applicant

I got my Stanford decision and I did not get in. I really felt like this school was a great fit for me and so I'm really thrown off. What's bothering me the most is that some kids with WAY lower stats than me, fewer extracurriculars and other factors DID get in. I took the weekend to just absorb it and now I'm putting together a new list of schools to apply to. But since I really felt like Stanford was a fit and obviously they didn't feel the same way, I'm not sure how to figure out where a good fit is and where one isn't. Based on stats alone, I should be getting in everywhere. Can you help me figure out the "fit" part?
