You have a few reach schools which is fine. You could add a few more low and mid tier schools such as Drexel, New York Medical College, Einstein, Albany, GW, Georgetown, Loyola, Rosalind Franklin.

Thanks! The only reason I didn't have a lot of those school on in the first place was because of the ridiculous amount of applicants they get (especially the GW and Georgetown in DC). Factoring this in, should I apply to closer to maybe 18 or 20 schools as a safeguard?
