I think you're being realistic. MIT would be a stretch though and I recommend Fordham over Northeastern.

You have a decent profile. Your EC"s are particularly impressive. You are also going to start internships. I think you are being realistic in your choice of schools. As for your safety school, yes, Fordham would be fine . However, your chances of success will largely depend on how you present your candidacy ( your goals etc.) in your essay .

Good luck,

Poonam
