I need to find grad schools to apply to, especially ones that aren't top-tier. Field: Decision-making.

I'm looking to study decision-making, behavioral economics, and social behavior in graduate school. I have roughly a year and a half of lab background in this field, which includes all aspects of the research process - designing experiments, running them, entering data, and writing papers. While I feel that I'm qualified to work at nearly any lab with my background, my GPA is only 3.4 and there will be dozens, if not hundreds of applicants to the programs I have as my absolute top picks. So, what are some other schools in this range?
- Preferably, the program should have minimal or no tuition, or the tuition should be covered. This is pretty important.
- These are traditionally offered through psychology departments and business schools; I'd be game for either approach.
- I don't mind going out of the US. In fact, I'd be very interested in programs in Scandinavia or most of Europe.
My current list is just Carnegie Mellon, Harvard, Princeton, Penn and the University of Helsinki. I feel like there have to be several programs I'm overlooking.
