As far as safeties are concern, I would add 1 or 2 Engineering-related HBCU (Howard, Prairie View A&M, NC A&T). These HBCUs are top universities for recruiting of minority engineering students.
Emory does a 3-2 program with GIT so that is why she is looking at Emory (net price calculator on Emory was affordable. GIT was not).
The other qualities my DD is looking for is a strong co-op program and study abroad (she says she wants to minor in French to continue to build her fluency). Some schools show a strong documentation of both, some just mention both. If anyone has ideas feel free to share.
