Im in a small NY town, in the thick of my senior year and I know where my top school is (BU), I know a few other schools I want to go to (Fordham, American) and I have a few safeties.
I have 7 schools and everyone keeps telling me thats not enough, so I was wondering if someone could recommend another good school that they think I should apply to and can get in to...
-3.6 UW GPA on a 4.0 Scale
-6 AP's, 4 Honors Courses
-Over 400 Hours Of Community Service
-President of one club for 3 years, member of a few including National Honor Society
-AP Scholar Award
-Dont mean to sound like a jerk but my essay is pretty damn good, original, creative, and all that jazz.
Im generally leaning towards pursuing a business-related career so maybe a school that has a good business program, although i'm not going to exclude any schools if they dont meet that standard because i'm not certain on that yet.
Im not that picky in terms of size. Id like to go to a school in a more urban environment but its not a big deal if I don't. Id also like to generally stay in the Northeastern general area, but id probably be willing to go as far down south as the Carolinas.
BU is my top school, but I think its more of a match than a reach. Also applying to:
Maybe Loyola Maryland...
