Hi there, I'm just trying to get an idea of what kind of graduate schools I have a chance at. I'd really appreciate any feed back.

Undergraduate Institution: Penn State Main / Statistics Major, Math major, econ minor

GPA: 3.33/4.0
really bad gpa freshman year but I brought it up. kind of went down last semester a little lol. Around 3.5 average for math and stat classes. 

Math Courses: Calc 1, 2 (A-), Calc 3 (C), Diff EQ (A), Combinatorics (A-), Into Discrete Math (B-), Into Real Analysis (A-), Intro Probability (A), Matrices (B+), Linear Programming (A), Numerical Computations (A)

Stat Courses: Into to Statistical Inference (A), Stochastic Modeling (A), ANOVA (A-), Regression (A), Time Series (B), Non Parametric Stat (B), Survey Sampling (A), Intro to Sas (B+), Intermediate & advanced SAS (A-)

Type of Student: Domestic asian female with white person name (so I guess I could put do not answer under ethnicity, not sure if it'll look better as a white or asian female)

Research Experience: 

Did an REU where I learned Bayesian stat. Not very much actual research. So I got recommendation letter from one of the professors who is in charge of it. 

Currently doing research in the psych department where I'm doing data cleaning in R

Letters of Recommendations:

1 probably decent from professor I did reserach with over the summer
2nd one probably decent from adviser who i've known for around 3 years. Got a B+ in her matrices class
3rd one from professor who I didn't do much research with. Got an A in his probability class but a B+ in his stochastic modeling class

GRE:

V: 155 i think 78% Q: 166 i think 90% W: 4.5 probably 80%

 

Schools I'm planning on Applying to: 
Penn State
Cornell
Pittsburgh
Iowa State
Columbia
Purdue

I'm really trying to find a school that I can get out with a Masters in one year. If anyone else has any idea what schools I would have a chance at, please let me know. 
I think I have a pretty good chance at Penn State since that's my undergrad institution but I'd really like to know what my chances are at the other ones on the list, particularly Cornell.
