    Congratulations on your HS achievements.

    Did you apply EDI or EA anywhere? Considering ED2?

    All of the schools on your list are reaches, with the exception of CWRU (probably a match). Make sure you have a broader list which includes additional matches and at least one affordable safety.

    Have you run the net price calculators (NPCs) on each school's site to estimate COA? Note the NPC may not be accurate if your parents are divorced, own a business or have significant real estate assets.

    Good luck.

    OOS will not matter for WashU since it’s a private school.

    Michigan and UNC will be reaches for any OOS student even with high stats. UNC has a mandate to take in-state students first.
