Your list looks pretty good. I might replace a couple of the top top tier with some mid and lower tier private schools, Jefferson or Temple, etc. just because apart from your state schools you don't have many lower tier schools. So if you are interested in attending school OOS, you may want to expand your options. But if you don't mind staying in VA, then your list is pretty good.

You are aware that we have a "What are my chances" thread, right? :)

:luck: to you.

With my 29R and 3.6 I am hardly a good advisor for those of you applying to Haaaarrrr-varrrrd. :)
