I'm no expert at this but I'd def. throw Northwestern on that list due to the WE
you're wrong. Also, your avatar and your name don't make any sense. Step your game up, son.

Thanks for the input.  Sorry I failed to mention that I am apply to several reach schools.  I was just concerned that, should none of my reaches come through, I wouldn't have enough safety and target schools, so I was wondering if the schools I had listed could be considered safety/target given my stats.

I don't know about USC and UCLA, but for the others I would say yes.

I think MCB's right though.  Cross out the first two.  Definitely look in T14.  Also, depending on where you want to practice, you may find some regional schools to be a good fit -- ex) Vanderbilt, UNC, WUSTL, etc.

Aim Higher, either go hard or don't go at all. I know my #'s weren't that impressive but that didn't stop me from applying all over the place. The bulk of my schools were T1, hell I had the unmitigated gaul to apply to Yale.

Don't let a website stop you, apply where u desire to apply, make THEM take the time and effort to reject you.
