Hi all,

I've sent off my applications to my primary targets, along with a few safety schools in the mix. However, now that they're in and I've had time to start stressing about acceptances, I've started to think that maybe I should broaden my list. To cut to the chase, my stats are 174/3.8. I've applied to most of the top ten (still holding back on yale since I'm not sure it's worth it), but I'm now thinking that I should add in schools like Austin and Northwestern.

Location is a big draw for me - I'm trying to think of cities where I could see myself living happily for 3 years (but still with national reach for post-grad jobs). Money is also a factor, since I won't be aiming for big law jobs upon graduation (more in the PI arena).

Thoughts? Any suggestions for where I should be aiming? Thanks a bunch - and apologies if I'm coming off like a stressed-out whiner!

Texas. Not Austin. Texas.
