Where should I be aiming for? One of my letter writers told me he's not sure if his letter would be good enough for top 10, how bad of a sign is this? Do I have a chance at top 15?
My guess is your at U Toronto. I would talk to the faculty there and ask them. The one piece of advice, I will give you is pick the right letter writers. Someone who will write a strong letter and specific things about it. I've seen profiles like yours get rejected from every single top 10 school and I have sen profiles like yours get accepted at Harvard and Stanford. There is a lot of randomness profile.
