I disagree with d1337. I think your target schools are almost all reaches. You have anywhere from a 27%-45% chance at those you listed . However, schools such as Vandy and ND love extracurriculars, a history of significant volunteerism, and strong PS aimed at their school. So perhaps they should rightly be on your target list due to your UG institution reputation, ecs, we, volunteer, LR, etc.. If I were you, I would add a few more realistic targets to my list: UGA, Emory, IU-B, Illinois, Wake Forest etc. Your reaches are just that reaches. Will you get in? Probably not, but atleast you'll know for sure. Good Luck.
