    3.78 overall and science GPA, 21 on the DAT, work as a DA over the summer. I only want to apply to four schools (U of Mich, UDM, Marquette, Case). will this be enough or should I apply to more to be safe?

    Your stats are very impressive. You would probably get in any school you apply to.

    To OP, you will definately get into the private schools hands down (I will be really surprise if you don't), and being a Michigan resident, U Mich should also accept you too! In matter of fact, if you want to specialize, you can apply and probably get in to Harvard too! (That is, if you really 100% sure you want to specialize)

    Apply to more to be safe. The extra $150 you spend by applying to a mere three more schools, might really benefit you in the long run. You might get a scholarship, or you might just save yourself a boat-load of trouble.

    That isn't to say that your stats you posted don't look great, because they do. It is to say, however, that the admissions process can be very screwed up, and nothing is for sure.
