Looking for target/safety school suggestions! :) <3 Thank you!

Hey there! I'm struggling to discover safety and target schools (above 50-60% acceptance rate) that I connect with, and I'm hoping to gather a few suggestions! My reach/hard target schools include Vanderbilt (#1 choice), Wake Forest (#2 choice), Case Western Reserve, Emory, William & Mary, and Davidson College. Here are some things I'm looking for in a school:

Medium sized - ~2,000 -15,000 students; would like to be able to develop relationships with the professors and attend smaller classes of around 20-60 people, versus huge lectures of 400+ people!

Lower student to faculty ratio - Again, I'm looking to get to know my professors a little more and form connections with them.

Opportunities for majors in the medical field and the ability to explore various majors - I'm currently undecided, but want to pursue something in the medical field, so a school that offers biology or health-care related studies is perfect!

Located in the southeast - I'd prefer to explore schools in the southeast - I live in North Carolina, so really as far as any of the greater-surrounding states! I'm willing to go farther, though!

Offers club, varsity, or intramural swimming - I am a swimmer, and I'd love to be on a team! If this isn't possible, I'd be totally fine settling for a school with access to a pool and good gym!

Able to handle/accommodate dietary restrictions and ADHD/mental divergences - A place that offers resources for students with learning differences would be fabulous! The ability to connect with a counselor would be really nice, too! Thank you SO much!!
