hi big4sucks (almost as awkward when I type it as I read it... =P),

I think you have a good shot at getting into one of the mentioned schools. Turn in a kickbutt application, great essays, and good letters, you should be good. Your numbers are all good and the only thing that's a 'con' is that there are plenty of your types applying, so you just need to stand out.
