Don't give up. There a likely to be a lot of good schools that have spaces opening up in mid-April. But don't go for the top 20. Aim for the 30-60 range. In mid-April, if you haven't gotten in anywhere, e-mail a couple of dozen schools in that group and ask them if they have spots. Include your info (ALL of it) and say that you're willing to rush an application to them. Every so often, schools get a much lower yield than expected (one year, Santa Cruz wanted 12 and got 3), and that might be more likely this year with so many students applying to a dozen or more places.
