I've applied to 7 of these places already, will apply for the others this weekend (they've Jan 15 deadlines). Have I made my selections of ambitious-reach-safe schools properly? My coursework is good (~6 graduate courses in area of interest with good grades) and subject GRE (88%) is good too. Some research, recommendations should be good too. The only negative is the GPA, it seems-7.33/10 in first two years is probably bad, is 8.35/10 for the next too good? I honestly have very little idea.

Can someone please help a bit?
