You have a competitive profile for the schools on your list and have chosen well. You may also want to consider Tuck and Michigan.

Good luck!

Thanks for the input Linda...do you see any weaknesses I can address or any other ways to strengthen my apps ....also I am thinking of apping to only 5 schools as any more would dilute my apps ...would I be right in considering Stern a safety ?

If Stern is a "safelty" for anyone, it would be someone like you. Again I think you are applying appropriately. With good essays, recs, and interviews you should hear good news.

Good luck!
