OP may want to consider the extended market index rather than just mid cap. Over a long run of investing, small cap exposure helps significantly. If the investor is conservative minded, then avoiding small caps makes sense.

Thanks for clarifying. I'll add VBR to my after-tax portfolio (50/50 VTSAX/VIMAX ). I don't need this money for at least 8-11 years.

A quick read of the thread shows that the OP picked the extended market index.

The paragraph and bullets do not agree. Mentions midcap in paragraph and VXF in the allocation.

VXF (extended market index fund) is classified as a US mid/small cap fund which is the same as a "US Small & Mid Cap" fund.
