Is applying to 11 schools enough? 8 of them are in CA (which I know is really competitive) and 3 are out of state.

Any input is appreciated.

all schools are competitive. don't apply to a school you wouldn't attend if it was your only choice, otherwise apply to as many as you can. your numbers are good but not going to stand out among other applicants

In the PT school game, it's more about looking at school specifics and application differences versus mass application. Target schools where you will be weighed most favorably. Identify all your schools as "reaches", "good chance" and "backup". My recommendation is to have 2 reaches, maybe 1 backup and the majority of schools should be in the good chance range.
