If you are already a Questbridge National Match Finalist, then those 45 partner schools that work with Questbridge are your best bet. The only addition I would suggest is applying to Harvard University since they will give you preferential treatment for being a Black Male applicant.
For the most part, except Harvard, Cornell, JHU, you can just apply RD with your Questbridge application, the rest you can do on the Common App.
Curious, what kind of answer are you looking for if you have already invested all this time and effort in the Questbridge process? The only other colleges that may be a good fit are HBCs like Spelman, Howard, Morehouse, Xavier and Hampton.
Woah! you got a lot of stuff going on there!
