    Hey guys I want your opinion on potentially adding more schools to my list. My stats are as follows 3.73 cumulative GPA and 3.75 science GPA, I got a 24 AA and TS and my resume is decent with lots of exposure to the field. Also, I have NY residency. The one thing I can admit is that I feel as though I have weak letters of recommendation. So far I have applied to the following schools:
    1. UNC
    2. Tufts
    3. Harvard
    4. BU
    5. Stony
    6. Buffalo
    7. UCLA
    8. Columbia
    9. Rutgers
    10. U Conn
    11. U Penn

    I am concerned that I may be applying to too many schools that have a rather low acceptance rate and not enough target schools. What are your thoughts and if so what schools would you suggest adding?

      6 of your 11 are in the top 10 or so most difficult schools to get in to...
