I am a high school junior. I have a composite ACT score of 33, a PSAT of 218, and I am in honors and AP courses, so I do pretty well academically. I think I would be interested in attempting to get into an Ivy League because I can appreciate the quality of the education, but I am turned off by how left-wing those schools are. I've looked at places like Vanderbilt and Pepperdine (which are great schools while still being comparitively conservative), but am not sure if those would be the right fit. I am open to public/private/located anywhere (although I love the South most). The school also does not have to have any outright religious affiliation. I just am not into the party or Greek scene (which is why descriptions of Vanderbilt's student body disappointed me), and I am a very conservative/Christian person. Does anybody have any suggestions?
