Where do you want to end up after graduation?  If you're hoping for LA/SF/NYC, I wouldn't apply to UGA or George Mason.

Reaches:
BU
BC
George WAshington
Emory

The other schools on your list seem like OK targets.  I think you'll be WL at WUSTL, Notre Dame, and possibly Illinois.  Loyola seems like your only safety.  I'd add others.

My thoughts are that your numbers are a little low for GW, BU, BC, W&M, Emory and Fordham, but the others you stand a decent shot.  You just dont know though.  I applied in 2006, my friend applied in 2008.  We had similar numbers and she got rejected from schools I got accepted to and vice versa.  It is completely random.  I would suggest applying to as many places as you can afford.  I put in 20 apps, got 10 rejections and 10 acceptances.  Ended up at a T20 after having been rejected by Fordham, W&M and others lower down the usnews list.  Good luck though!  And, my advice, if you get waitlisted, keep on them with follow ups, etc.
