    You just want maximum chances out of these? Take off schools like GW and Georgetown, they have some of the most amount of applicants per year, your stats may be fine for them, but you are fighting the odds. Next look into OOS seats they offer/people applying and start narrowing down more. For example, Dartmouth may be a fair match for you, but their class size is half of that at other places = less seats = theoretically less chance. Also take into consideration each school's missions and selection reasoning, Brown takes in a lot of their undergrads I believe, so if you didn't go to Brown consider that.

    I might remove Georgetown, GWU, UMaryland (likes state residents), etc because they get many applicants and are much more competitive than their accepted scores imply. Loyola and Gtown are Jesuit and you have an advantage if you are as well.

    Wake Forest, VT, UMiami are good matches for your scores. (you should have no problem getting an interview at Wake provided you apply early.) I would look at MSAR and scratch off schools on that Maybe List that don't accept a good percentage of OOS students.
