George Mason
George Washington
Fordham
Boston U.

I'll defer to the board old heads, but...I'd aim higher.

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.
