Hello everyone! I am applying for the first time and I kind of lost with regard to creating a school list and whether or not the current schools on my list are a good fit for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Here's my info:

    - 1.5 years volunteering at a hospice (150 hours)
- 8 months volunteering at a cancer center helping nurses administer treatments (100 hours)

Generally looking to stay in Florida to take advantage of lower in-state tuition rates. Hoping to apply to some T-20 schools but don't know if my extracurriculars are up to that level. Tentative school list as for now:

Cornell
Brown
Dartmouth
Case Western
WUSTL
Vanderbilt
U Chicago
Miami (FL)
Emory
Michigan
Cincinnati
U Florida
Pittsburgh
UNC
Ohio State
Wayne State

Remove UNC as they take few students who aren't residents of the state.

You could add:
Mayo
Keck
Rochester
Einstein
