edited September 13 in College Search & Selection
Demographics: Asian female. International student but moved to the US a year ago. Studied 12th grade in CO. I will be a freshman this fall at a CC in WA. I want to major in Business and maybe double major in Computer Science

Scores SAT super score:1300 (620 R 680 M) I'm going to check with colleges and retake it this November because I feel like I didn't have time to study in 12th grade. Now I've definitely improved a lot.

School and class info: 3.78 UW GPA, 4.15 W GPA. College first quarter didn't start yet.

Senior year - AP Calc AB AP Microeconomics, AP Macroeconomics, Adv. Physics. My school in India didn't have AP's

College: A community college in WA. I will be taking Microeconomics, Calc 1, English 101 and Stats this fall. All these are requirements for an Associate's degree and requirements for admission to UW

Extracurriculars: Future Business Leaders of America(FBLA) - Senior year. Received 1st prize in district level for banking and financial systems. Qualified for States. Received Varsity letter
Distributive Educational Club of America(DECA) - Senior year. 3rd prize in CU invitationals for principles of business management.
Graduated with Magna Cum Laude (I think it's like top 10% of the class)
Going to join a business club in my new college

Costs: I can pay $15,000 a year. I will take a loan if it's a little more than that. But no more than $25,000 per year
I'm looking at Drexel, UW Seattle (I could qualify for in state tuition), and still looking for more colleges.
I got $36,000 aid from Drexel last year. I mentioned on my CSS that I can pay $30,000 but I'm changing it to $15,000 this year. Can I get $36,000 like last year, or will it be even less now that I'm a transfer student?

In my senior year, I got into UCI, UW(Pre Science), Drexel, Fordham, UCSC, a couple others and waitlisted at NYU.
Thank you!
