I will be applying ED to Vanderbilt this year, but of course need to be preparing other applications for RD. I feel that I have a fighting chance at Vanderbilt but of course, with today's acceptance rates it is impossible to quantify an individual.
With that being said, I am looking for other options besides Vanderbilt. I visited Emory and Duke, and will most likely apply to those for regular decision. Are there any other schools that are similar to these that I could consider? Are there any similar schools that aren't quite as impossibly hard to get into?
