I don't think im strong enough candidate for upenn wharton but im planning on applying to Wharton, Stern, Columbia, and UT Austin (EA if they can) - I can't ED since the financial package is super important and if I do not receive enough financial aid I will not be able to go (I know it really decreases my chances not applying ED)

Safety: UT Austin

My target schools are UT BHP (Honors), I'm not sure if NYU is a target or reach but I really want to get into Stern - its my dream school

Reach: Stern, Wharton, Columbia, Stanford - again for a lot of these i dont think im a strong enough candidate, my dream school is NYU Stern

Essays/LORS: I am not the best writer but I am gonna really buckle down when they come around (I'm a junior right now), LORS - School counselor should be good (she writes a lot since our school has lots of students applying to prestigious institutions), Basketball Coach (not sure, either going to be amazing or not too good, but he really knows me and has seen me at my worst so I think it should be fine:))
