If you only have "some research" rather than two-plus years of substantive experience (and maybe publications), you might want to rethink the inclusion of schools among the Top Twenty, which are research powerhouses. I'd add maybe three mid-slective schools.

If you haven't seen it, check out the School Selection spreadsheet stickied to the top of this forum for help in picking more schools and for their relative rank.

Your stats are competitive for just about anywhere, assuming your EC's are in order (clinical, volunteer, research) and you have good interview skills. However your list outside of the Ohio schools is as top heavy as it gets. Add a couple of mid tiers and/or safeties to be safe. Nobodies list should be 50%+ top tier schools.
