Hey, I am applying for an NSF graduate fellowship this year. The application requires me to list my prospective graduate program, and describe my project at the school. What I'm wondering is, what kind of school to list. I have three lists of potential schools - my dream list (the slightly out of my league, but if GRE goes well I could get in), my realistic list (I'm fairly certain I could get in) and my failsafe list (I for sure could get in even if I did badly on the GRE). I don't know whether to shoot for the stars on my NSF application and put my dream school up, or whether I should list something more realistic. I don't want to put down a good school if the reviewers might think "oh, she could never get in there, so we aren't going to award her"... but maybe that's not how the reviewers think at all.. I am just wondering if anyone has any suggestions, advice or comments about this. Thanks!
