    I'd add a couple more safeties to your list. Too many colleges on your list are very competitive for nursing admission. U.Del nursing is difficult for admissions, but it is OK to use it as a reach.

    I wouldn't pay NYU prices (and NYC living expenses) for a nursing degree, particularly because they are infamous for bad financial aid.
