    BU might be a match, but the others?
    Top 20% and 1320 SAT make most of the others reaches. Not sure about UT but you need to find real matches and safeties.
    Your stats are not the caliber of Amherst, Cornell, etc.....
    You might want to look at schools that are closer to your average stats.
