If your goal is to be as agressive as possible and still maintain diversification, you could look at doing one of the following.

Follow an index strategy with the following

15% Lehman Aggregate Bond Index
35% Met Life Stock Index (Assuming this tracks the S&P 500)
30% Russell 2000 Index
20% Morgan Stanley EAFE Index (This is International Stocks)

For an actively managed portfolio

Salomon US Gvoernemnt Bond 15%
Davis Venture Value 20%
American Funds Growth Fund 20%
Aim Mid Cap Core 10%
franklin templeton Small Cap 15%
Oakmark international 20%

Without much knowledge about your risk tolerance and your definition of agressive keep in mind this is just a very rough suggestion that provides exposure to different asset
classes and should help smooth out the bumps in most market conditions.
