To put it simply, I'm a junior with a 4.0 who recently decided to graduate early from high school with her associate of science from a local community college. I've recently taken both the SAT(2320; R 800, M 770, W 750) and ACT(35; R 36, W 36, S 36, M 33). Although I've applied to two colleges already (University of Utah and Southern Utah University, I live in Utah), I'm wondering if there are other colleges I should consider where I could get a good scholarship as my dad, although a doctor, does not want to pay for my bachelor's in chemistry.
I know it's very late in the college application process and most good scholarships have closed, but I was curious and would hate to miss an opportunity of a better education. I would really just like to go to a university with very strong academics and good research opportunities.
As far as my extracurriculars go, the ones that come to mind are,
I think I'm considered varsity team captain on cross-country
I participate in Track and Field
I'm an honor student in Academic Decathlon who got region Top Scholar
I'm senator for the juniors in my early college high school program
I've participated in Science Olympiads for the last 4 years
I've participated in high school plays
I've played in the high school band
I volunteer with an animal rescue group
I've gone to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair
Thanks so much for your time and any advice you might offer,
