Schools I'm thinking of applying to are:

I don't know if all of the schools mentioned above are difficult for me. I kind of need to study next year so I would like to have at least 2 safe options.

Can you recommend which school should I choose?

Btw, I'm quite interested in apply to Cornell in Round 2 (09/11/2010). I just started working on 1 essay only. All of my recommenders have just submitted their recommendations today.
Do you think i should try to submit in this round or wait for next one?
I have not applied to any school yet because I just took my GMAT only last Saturday.

Thank you very much.
