My numbers aren't THAT much better than their medians. Right now the best school I could possibly squeak into is Texas, but they didn't send a fee waiver, so I didn't send an application.
You should apply to Texas if you are ok with living there for three years of school. It's a really good school. Not sure what's up with the waitlist at Iowa. My numbers were just a tiny bit better than yours, and I got waitlisted at Minnesota in a similarly-confusing fashion. I got into much more selective schools (Vandy, Cornell), so no idea what happened. I thought MAYBE it's because I'm from Iowa, and Iowa is a peer school, so they assumed that I'd take Iowa over Minny if I didn't go somewhere higher. And to be honest, they'd have been right. Are you from Minnesota, Illinois, or Indiana?
Chicago suburban brat here. Think that might be it?
I would actually love to live in Texas. But I have no ties and that application fee scares the hell out of me. I might apply with Christmas money + improved GPA. Should be a 3.7ish after fall grades are in. yay for upward trends.
