You should apply to the schools you listed if they truely interest you. A good safety school for you would probably be Univeristy of Illinois Urbana-Champagne. If you're undecided, it might be a good idea to go to a school where you have lots of different options, which the shcools listed can provide.

according to Princeton review a 3.8 is a 93.
4.0- 95-100
3.9- 94
3.8- 93
3.7- 92
you get my drift
