<p>You have a lot of reachy schools on that list. Wake, Richmond, Villanova, Bowdoin, William and Mary, Lehigh, and Trinity will be reaches. Fairfield and Holy Cross are more like matches. If you can get your SAT's up to the 1300+ range Wake, Richmond, Villanova, Lehigh, and Trinity will be looking more realistic. Bowdoin and William and Mary aren't very realistic, unless you have a legacy or something, because Bowdoin is just very selective and W&M is very difficult to get into OOS.
I applied to Wake ED1 last year. I would say it def. helped me, because it truly was my one and only choice. For Wake work really hard on your essays, because they are really important. However, I thought my acceptance was really close to Wake, because my stats weren't overwhelming (1320 SAT, 5 APs), but I do know people here with SAT's in the 1200s so its not impossible, just unlikely.<br>
For more schools to add perhaps Northeastern, Elon, Mary Washington, Loyola Maryland, and Providence.<br>
Good luck with everything and if you have any Wake related questions feel free to PM me. Definetly try to get your SATs up though! :)</p>
