First of all, congratulations on planning ahead. You are so much better off by starting now. You might be interested in our Round 1 timeline: http://blog.accepted.com/2012/02/10/rou ... fographic/
We'll post on for 2014 this week, but it's virtually the same.
You have chosen your schools well, perhaps a bit conservatively -- I assume to increase the likelihood of financial assistance. You may also want to consider Rochester Simon and UNC.
