Thank you for your posting.
Please see my comments below concerning your target list of schools. Realize that you are in a very competitive demographic and actual acceptance rates are significantly lower than the school’s average acceptance rates. This means to stand out from your true competition, you are going to have to submit a compelling application – one where the schools sees your value as a student and as an alumni.
