Long story short: I know that my reaches are ultra reaches so I have no expectation of getting admitted which im fine with. My targets and safety are pretty good I think and I hope I can get into at least 1 bs/md or bs/do.
Schools: Cornell ED(reach), UPenn (reach), NYU (reach), Stony Brook BS/MD + regular (target), Binghamton (target), Syracuse regular + bs/md (target), Fordham (target), Hofstra bs/md + regular (target), Penn State (safety), NYIT bs/do (target), Adelphi (safety)
**all bs/md and bs/do programs are reaches but the regular undergraduate programs are targets
**test optional may or not help me for the reach schools?
