    I know that I have quite a bit of reach schools, or ones that are bad for Cali residents (read Univ. of Washington), but all of these are on my list because of some personal reason or another. I realize I have too many dream schools. I am trying to make sure that I get in on this application cycle. I am happy with the size of my list money wise (goodbye life savings), but I want to hear what I should remove and what I should add. Any feedback is welcome!
