absent, cancel, cancel, 163 (including addendum)
gpa: 3.63
good work experience
great LORs (none however from a professor)
great PS (unique work history/experiences)

I'm having a hard time figuring out what are "safe" schools. I'm really looking only for schools in NJ/NY/PA/DC area. This is the list I have. Are they safe schools or should I be aiming lower? Any suggestions for others? Thanks!

I guess what I really want to ask is do you think I should shoot lower should admissions be way more competitive this year?

Get an LOR from a professor. Most schools require one IIRC. Don't go to Brooklyn or Seton even if you do get in.

I think its just special-snowflake syndrome. But its not just OP. Honestly, its our entire generation.

I've seen some truly great ones, so I'm not saying everyone is over selling. I just think it's ridiculous that every single person on this site thinks their ps and lor's are just fantastic. 80% of the time they look like the person sat with a thesaurus and changed every other word.
