    What's up? Like it says in the subject line, I'm a nontrad. My cGPA is being dragged down by my gpa from art school 10+ years ago. Otherwise, I would have a 3.8+ from a non-grade-inflating Ivy. Neuroscience major. Clinical research, lots of leadership experience, volunteering, great LOR's. I also have a pretty well-rounded, artistic background. Art, music, creative writing, etc. Interesting life story. VA resident with strong ties to New York, trying not to get too far away from the northeast region.

    Current school list, which I am hoping to refine:

    VCU
    EVMS
    NYMC
    GW
    Hofstra
    Dartmouth
    Einstein
    Stony Brook
    Georgetown
    Temple
    Jefferson
    Drexel
    UVA
    Columbia
    Sinai
    Cornell
    NYU

    Should I be adding more reaches or more stuff in the middle range?

    In my opinion your school list looks great to me, I would advise to add more schools more in the middle range and add some reaches as well. I am sure you'll get accepted somewhere regardless, your application is wonderful.

    @Fyiii20 Thanks! My issue is I'm not really sure which middle range schools to add because I don't want to move too far away. I'm an East Coast person at heart and all of my family and friends are nearby. Maybe Quinnipiac? I need ideas.
