Always aim high. if you don't land at FAANG while aiming for it you'll land at other tier 2 companies which are still great. Fang isn't as hard as people think. I've worked with plenty of 'dumb' people at fang who probably just studied well for the interviews.

Plus, it's way easier to get downleveled than it is to try and get upleveled, so even with 3 YOE, just apply for the SDE2 roles and see if you can get them. If not, they may just downlevel you to an L4/SDE1 anyways, but at least you'll have a chance at an SDE2 role.
