    a lot of those targets should be reaches (Georgetown, Swarthmore, Williams at least). I would suggest finding more schools w/ acceptance rates in the mid-low 30s instead of below 20! I'm not saying he won't get in, just that sometimes it's good to have low targets! UW seattle, lowers UCS for safety? other flagship publics? Occidental?
