Hello,
Thanks for your post. While it's tough to fully assess without another level of detail (say through a resume review, which we could do with a free consultation if you are interested), given that you have had promotion and recognition and presumably leadership at work, and some community involvement and solid GPA in econ etc.... I would roughly agree with your school categorization thus far. There's a chance the 'target' schools will still be challenging just given the level of competition among similar candidates, and depending upon how well you put together your application, and upon your recommendations and other factors. The 'safety' schools might not be entirely 'safe' but thinking of them as 'safer' might make the most sense. Hope that helps for an initial reaction; check out our 'Selecting Schools' download for more insight at:
