So, I've put together a tentative list of program to which I plan to apply:

Cornell (NYC program), U Mass, U Pitt, UMD, GWU, Georgetown, Dartmouth (Quant. Biostats), Boston U, Brown, Rutgers

Does this seem like a fair assessment of programs for which I would be a competitive candidate, or am I aiming too high?
