I'll be really grateful if someone could please help me in categorising these as Ambitious/Mod/Safe. Is this is a good set of school to apply or just over-ambitious?
Also, it'll be great to know if there any other good programs/universities that I might have missed. Would also be a pleasure to connect with seniors who might be able to guide me in writing the SoP.
Thanks in advance, all the lovely people of the group - it has been a great help.
