I'm a junior in high school and lately I've been talking to a lot of people heading off to college, and hearing their stories and what they did to get in, and I've been losing a lot of sleep thinking about what schools I'm qualified for. I have a counselor appointment next week, but I could really use some peace of mind knowing it earlier, so I'd really appreciate if anyone could look at my stats and give me a ballpark estimate of what schools I should apply to. Thanks!

BTW I'm dead set on majoring in Electrical Engineering
