Please help me sort these universities as ambitious,moderate or safe.
I am looking to apply to 2 ambi, 4 mod and 2 safe univs. Also, I am looking to apply to one outrageously ambitious university (MIT/Harvard), would it be advisable to give it a shot, since my guide at UTokyo has co-authored quite a few papers with an MIT prof recently, as well as he had done his postdoc from MIT.
Thanks in advance!
