<p>bump?</p>

<p>You look good for all of the schools you are considering. You might even want to add a reach or two more just to see what happens.</p>

<p>This is a great track record. You will be fine with all of those schools. You should also look at larger schools because I guarantee you could get a nice scholarship. I attend a small private university but applied to a couple state schools. I was given a free application to LSU (Louisiana State University), filled it out, and wound up with a full ride.</p>

<p>Very strong candidate for all, with merit aid for where applicable. I think you can safely add a few more reaches. Aim high.</p>

<p>You look like a capable applicant for all of these schools. </p>
