    It's not a bad list. Your success at the reach schools will *really* be driven by the strength of your letters of recommendation as well as the written aspects of your application. I would recommend adding 2 schools that you think are below your stats. If you're getting lots of other interviews, then maybe you don't even bother to interview at those 2 lower schools, but it's nice to have more to fall back on.

    You have a good list, but it can get difficult if you do not get into UMD, GW or G-town.

    Fortunately, your chances of getting into one of these schools is very good. What's the breakdown of your MCAT scores?

    I'd eliminate VCU and add Jefferson Medical College (PA) as well as MC Wisconsin. Even if you keep VCU, add Jefferson and MCW.

    FYI, it's Johns Hopkins.
