hi, i've been lurking around for a while and read as much as i can about peoples suggestions on schools. I have about 16 schools right now, but would like to add about 5-10 more. i've tried to hit the schools where it appears i'll be as competitive as i can in. i also have some "reach" schools in there. number one dream school is USC =( can you guys please look at my list and let me know what you think about it? - solid picks, good backups - i also need more suggestions as to schools i should apply to. note about my GPA: i have a pretty steep upward slope on my GPA... my upper division science GPA is about a 3.9. i'm also pretty solid on research. thanks in advance!
