I'm a high school senior at a fairly competitive high school in Massachusetts and I'm looking to pursue a degree in finance. While I have a few ideas, I feel like my list is too short and narrow. I am interested in schools like Northeastern/Bentley, I just need more suggestions. That being said, what are some match/reach colleges that I should consider? I really appreciate any help!
One thing that worries me is what seems like a discrepancy between my GPA and SAT score which I fear will tell colleges I got easy As which I don't believe is the case. I just kind of stink at English unfortunately. So with that I don't know what I can look at as far as reaches.
