Heptagon, Otoyomegatari, Genei Hakurankai. i've also been looking for mangas/manhwas with practical female leads, and Cheese in the Trap is the best one i know of so far, though you're already reading it. ...

Cheese in the Trap (awesome psychological manhwa, takes place in college and with smart, realistic characters), Sakamichi no Apollon (this one is in highschool, but its very slice of life and has no frivolous highschool drama. characters have depth to them), Story ...

it's not a manga, i highly recommend Cheese in the Trap subtly pokes fun at typical shoujo cliches (one of the reasons why i read it) and is refreshingly realistic with psychological twists. ...
