    If you want to narrow your list, I would suggest you take off Georgetown and George Washington just bc they get over 12k apps/yr. Overall, I think your list is good, though.

    Consider removing Brown because they have a heavy bias towards Brown undergrads, unless you went there of course.

    I would remove Rutgers NJMS since they heavily favor instate. According to the MSAR, they interviewed 2% of the OOS applicants last time around. Not worth the app fee IMO.

    Just removed them! I had only looked at the US News data for them for some reason. Big discrepancy between them and MSAR.

    I know this might be in the wrong direction, but why not swap out some of your mid-tier schools for a few top ones? With a 3.95 and 34, it's worth a shot for sure ..
