MIT MSF - Good shot, but it could be a toss up
Duke MMS - Should get into this
Vanderbilt MSF - Good chances
UT Austin MSF - Good chances
Boston College MSF - Should get in
WUSTL MSF - Good chances

I think your stats are good enough that you don't need a safety school. You'll get into many of the programs here if you apply early and have decent essays.

I am also looking at USC and Johns Hopkins but I'm unsure since USC is going to start its program next year and JHU is predominantly a med school.

USC is going to start in 2014, but you'd have to apply now. JHU is most well known for their medical school, yes, but Carey is an up and coming business school.

Wait to apply when you are a senior. No sense putting the cart before the horse.

Good Stats.I am wondering why you got rejected at vanderblit and WUSTL,may be just because of the internships or your first degree.Didn't you apply to MIT's MSF?

With Vanderbilt and WUSTL, I guess the numbers went against me as well. They have a class size of 45 and 25 respectively with each receiving north of 800 applications. I talked to some MIT/Princeton/Columbia students and knew that it would be a futile effort. I allocated my resources to help maximise my chances at other, equally good programs.
