Given what your advisors have told you, you should be fine with this list.
It would be greatly appreciated to get your two cents on my profile, as I have a feeling that I am aiming too high with not enough safety. My advisors agreed with the set of schools but I guess I lack in self-awareness.
Thank you in advance!

1) Two years of full-time RAing for two junior professors at a top 10 econ university; the professors are in the business school but they do heavy empirical, structural econ work.
2) One year of honors research in computer science (Math heavy)
3) One summer of full-time independent research in computer science
2 from the professors I full-time RAed for,
1 from my honors advisor
All are junior but I expect the best letter they can write, and they said they'd use their "social capital."
Research Interest: Applied Micro, specifically structural IO
Harvard Econ, HBS BusEcon, MIT, Princeton

Do you think I am taking too much risk by aiming too high?
Thank you all!
