<p>my issues are that I have too many schools on my list. how much is too much? as of now my list is:</p>

<p>R - Brown
R - Tufts
R - Wesleyan
R - Northwestern
R - UChicago
T - Trinity
T - Lafayette
T - Dickinson
T - BU
S - SUNY Binghamton
S - Quinnipiac
S - Muhlenberg </p>

<p>I'm definitely gambling right now with my so few safeties. I've been getting tons of emails of Lafayette, Trinity, Northwestern and Uchicago this past month. So good sign right? I'm still unsure about some, so this list is tentitive</p>

<p>Based on your current test scores, I think your reaches are too reachy and your targets are a little high. Raise your scores and I think you're in good shape. </p>

<p>I think Dickinson is test optional, so that may a good choice. (Although, you might be required to submit scores for aid.)</p>

<p>Good luck. :)</p>
