I wanted to know if there are schools that I should take off/add. It feels and looks very top heavy, but I don't know how I would go about removing replacing specific schools. I would like more schools that I felt safer about, but I feel like that is impossible considering how competitive everywhere is. I am a white male btw if that helps/sways opinions.
