There are 8 schools on your list where you have a fair to good chance at an interview.
That's a good start.
Delete U of WA (not WWAMI).
Delete Duke, Vandy and UNC (stats).
Delete CO.
Substitute 4 schools that might interview you and call it a list!

gyngyn is on point. Michigan with their variety of IS options makes it less necessary to come up with an exhaustive list of lower tier schools and also your experiences will serve you well.
