Occidental is a terrific school. They've been receiving record numbers of applications in the past few years, however, and their stats have been going up for accepted students. Five years ago, I would have said Oxy was a safety for you but things have now changed. Look on their web site under news/press releases. As I recall, their SAT average this year was in the mid 1300's. You seem to fit their profile even with their rise in numbers so I think you can probably consider Oxy a match. However, if Oxy is your first choice, consider applying ED to increase your chances. Good luck!
