    You really need to have DAT scores up too. If I remember correctly, you haven't taken them yet but a 23/23 opens up chances at a lot more schools than a 19/19 so you really need them to complete the picture.

    I think if you read this forum long enough, you will find that there really are no "safe bets. There's just so many factors. I definitely think you should apply to Tufts and the NY schools. I think they won't be as critical because you go to Tufts and you're a resident of NY. Apply early! That's your best bet. Trust me.
