Please suggest to me if these universities look good according to my profile and if there is any decent chance to get in any of them (imposter syndrome at an all-time high!). Also, please suggest to me some universities I should look into and there is any university you think is not right for me or if I am reaching too out please feel free to tell me. Any recommendation is highly valuable.
