You would do well applying to those colleges which interest you, and remove their status as public or private from the conversation. There are pros and cons to either so really, it needs to be determined based on what you are looking for in a college. It is fine if your list of schools all happen to be public, or the list has a mix of private and public. You should apply with your comfort level in mind, not where others went, because in the end, you will be the one attending this time around, not anyone else.
