    OP, I am thinking that if you remain serious about foreign affairs, you will be looking at graduate school in your future. If you cannot get into (and pay for) one of your top choices, I would think that majoring/minoring (and excelling) in areas such as economics, languages, poli-sci, world history etc, would serve you well as a base for future specialization.

    Congrats! That is good news. I hope it all works out well for you. You had great stats and it is not surprising you got some good merit aid.
