Thanks in advance!!!

Duke is, of course, a reach, but I would say that you are pretty competitive, while Davidson is a lower reach, but you are also very competitive. Wake Forest would be a low reach or high match, IMO.

You are, overall a strong applicant, and while there is a chance that you will be rejected from the three colleges that remain, I think that it is more likely that you will be accepted to at least one.
