I know it's a lot, but I really don't know how to narrow down the selection. I'm white and artsy, with a 3.87 UW GPA and a 35 ACT score. I'm big into the maths and sciences, but would like some sort of art program as well. I have been in GSA (gay-straight alliance) and Robotics at my school for the past few years, and am in charge of both this year.
I'm looking for a small liberal arts college that's not in the middle of nowhere (but that's not a vital factor) with a strong science program. I've visited a good few of these and I like Middlebury, Vassar, Macalester and Swarthmore best. The problem is that there are so many other high-quality LACs that I probably won't be able to visit before applications are due, and I have no idea if this is even all of the ones I would be interested in.
